Subject Re: Valid version of the PDF specification?
Date Sat, 09 Oct 2004 12:46:50 GMT
OK -- PDF 1.4 it is.  I agree with supporting Acrobat
V5.  However, I don't see backwards compatibility
concerns as much of an issue here, given the Acrobat
Reader is free and pretty easy to download. 

Thanks,
Glen
