    wget downloads only part of a URL content

    I am trying to download the content of the following URL:
    When using wget and typing in
    wget -r
    , it will download only the following folders:
    gabriel@gabriel-laptop:~/$ ls
    css  images  includes  index.html  js  swf
    while what I am actually interested in are a lot of pdf files at that URL. The pdfs are located at adresses like the following one:
    When directing wget directly to a file I want to download, the file will not be downloaded, but rather a plain text document only, as for example in this case:
    gabriel@gabriel-laptop:~$ wget
    [1] 9001
    [2] 9002
    [3] 9003
    [4] 9004

    [3]   Done                    idobras=1300
    [4]+  Done                    tipo=partitura

    [1]+  Done                    wget
    Why does wget ignore these files, while it actually should download them?
