At least on the one-piece docs such as found on, the first page is
displayed using the PDFViewer plug-in as soon as it's in, while Netscape
continues to download the entire document in the background. But this isn't
truly "pulling pages on demand", as the document has to be browsed serially.
Thus Acrobat Reader's "Go To Page" command isn't provided in the PDFViewer
