    Ira,
    Thanks for your comments.

    Speaking of the PDF/A, I went to the PDF/A meeting in D.C. last week. The
    bottom line: I was successful in getting two major changes made to PDF/A
    that will allow PDF/is and PDF/A to be compatible:

    1) Invisible text should not require a font to be embedded.
    2) Digital Signatures will be allowed in PDF/A.

    If you're interested in reading about PDF/A, here's a link to their website:
    http://www.aiim.org/standards.asp?ID=25013

    They should have the minutes and a new version of the spec up soon.

    -Rick
