Default Tiger, Safari and PDF docs

When I upgraded to Tiger, I was somewhat bemused to discover that Safari 2.0.3 opens PDFs in a browser window as most Windows browsers do, instead of opening them in Adobe Acrobat/Reader. At first I was mildly irritated, then I sort of got used to it, but still hadn't decided whether I liked it or not. While I liked the fact that my desktop was no longer littered with Acrobat files whose names gave me no idea of their content or origin, I kept thinking I had copies downloaded that I could view again, and discovering that I didn't.

But in the past couple of days I've had several PDFs open up in Safari with type at a size I can't read, and there seems to be no way of increasing text size when this happens. Command-+ certainly has no effect.

So I've decided I dislike this new behaviour. Or is there some way of changing the text size in PDFs viewed within a Safari window?
