Last week someone posted a query about Adobe Reader, v. 8, saying that it 
did not render ligatures correctly (or at all) on files created by tex.  I 
don't recall if it was files converted by dvipdfm or from pdf{tex,latex}.  
I have not tested the latter, but I have no problem whatever with files 
converted by dvipdfm.  To be precise, I am using version 8.1.1, which is 
what they are currently distributing.  In any case, there are a number of 
free pdf renderers.
