	Hummm, actually, xpdf *does* show hyperlinks in documents. At
	least, for my Master's thesis, which I generate with pdflatex
	(with help of the hyperref package) I can click on all
	hyperlinks, internal to the document or not (that is, pointing
	to a document on the web).

	The only problems that I have with xpdf are:

	1 - its	anti-aliasing is not as good as acroread's;
	2 - the user interface is not good also; it should probably
	    use another widget toolkit and a redesign of the window;
	3 - it doesn't show transitions in pdf files (like those
	    generated by PPower4), which makes it unfeasible for
	    showing presentations -- acroread does fine here.
