From the document:
Additionally, this document is also available in it’s original
LATEX form as well as a PDF document. If you choose to compile the
LATEX document, you will need the images from the figures. You can save
them one at a time from the html version of this document at the
MacTEX web site by control-clicking on each of them.

So, the next two sentences describe how to use it. If I wrote to ignore
the errors and hit return, it wouldn't be any more helpful, since the
same person wouldn't read that sentence either.
