Technical Note: The composition and size of PDF files may vary greatly.  Files created from original source materials will usually have embedded discrete text that can be highlighted and copied.  This format tends to be much smaller than files created by scanning the printed article.  Scanned articles do not have discrete text and are essentially large graphic files.  This will be of greatest consequence to anyone who has a slow internet connection as it may take a long time to download.  Also, scanned text cannot not be highlighted and copied unless it is converted with OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software.
