How are you downloading files ? Use mercurial to clone the repository, should work. Let us know

I download them by clicking on them in my browser (or using 'save link as'), it downloads as .pdf but then i can not open it.

If you do not want to install mercurial, you can download a zip file with the whole HDK. Look at "download repository"

thanks! downloading the repository works! but why does downloading single files produce corrupt files?

I know this is an old question but on investigation I found that the downloaded file was actually the HTML of the web page, but renamed to the name of the file. I believe this was true for both IE and Firefox.

Files that were classed as "binary" could not be downloaded at all.

It was possible to obtain Eagle schematics though by selecting and copying the XML data in the web browser and pasting it into a text editor then using search and replace to remove unwanted HTML tags (<B>, </B>, <P>) to make a valid Eagle design file.
