For some peculiar reason the link to the document has "pdf+html" as an extension. http://www.pnas.org/content/101/39/13971.full.pdf+html . If I remove the "+html" then it displays as PDF file in Foxit Reader. Is "pdf+html" a valid extension? If I do not remove it both Adobe Reader and Foxit Reader (4.1.1.0805) complain that it is a "format error - not a pdf or corrupted". Unless "pdf+html" is valid extension I think this bug should be closed.
