Not to be contrary or anything, but sometimes users also download the
PDF because it's a nice, discrete "package" (particularly when there's
images, maps, etc added) that they can email, take around on a flash
drive, whatever (rather than having to "save this page" and having
potential issues with needing the downloaded images, stylesheets, etc).
Not saying it's always the case, or that it applies in this instance,
but thought it would be worth throwing into the mix here...
