Timelines in Adobe Acrobat® and PostScript® Formats

The content is identical between the Acrobat and PostScript versions. The Acrobat® format is preferred as it is faster to download (much smaller file size) and easier to view and manipulate. You will need to download the Acrobat® viewer in order to view or print this format, however. PostScript® format files may be downloaded and printed directly on any system with PostScript® printer drivers already installed. Please consult your system administrator for specific instructions on how to print on your local system.
