It's been like that for a while (1st page only). I don't know why. I always had to download the full pdfs separately.
By the way, Mike Green has created a nice HTML version of the docs that combines all info and release notes into one place:

Yes it had, but I pointed this out recently and in 10.1 is _should_ be fixed, is it not?

just found it a little bit of a pain , I fear anyone who wants to develop for LW is put off instantly when they cant even get a pdf to work :)

They are also ancient. In fact the first impression of the SDK is that it is ancient. Heading for the introduction, it's dated December 2001 (for example). That's not going to give a great impression.

Both of the LScript PDFs are also dated 2002, which suggests stagnation when the HTML notes show, to some extent, that things are still being worked on. I think that's a bit of a shame. Keeping the PDFs up to date would have been useful.
