Default Viewing PDFs from Websites?

Please Login to Remove!

I use this website for public transportation schedules:

SEPTA

Can anyone recommend a way to easily and quickly view these items from my BB? I've tried using BeamBerry, which is great, but it seems to only work with files downloaded from e-mail.

The site has PDF versions and html versions of the schedules. However, the html versions lose their formatting on the BB. Would my best bet be to download each and every PDF, send it through as an e-mail, and then save these items to the BeamBerry server?

Thanks for any information.

Can you do what you suggested through beamberry?
The key is to get it to e-mail.

Yes, I could do that - but it would entail saving every PDF because I go all over.

Thanks - I suppose I'll just start the project.
