    Re: Bowditch Edition 2002 -- Online files are problematic

    Because those are the standards, Mike. Acrobat is designed for "universal" 
    portability across platforms and users, and choosing to retain compatibility 
    with old verions sacrifices NOTHING for these types of files.
    In addition, many users--like myself--own the full Acrobat Distiller package 
    and are not about to pay for the upgrades to v.5, which unlike the "Acrobat 
    Reader" are not free.
    Look at it the other way around: Why should a million users upgrade for no 
    reason, when somebody just has to select "3.0/4.0 Compatibility" in their 
    setup options ONCE in order to make files that way?
    NIMA apparently made over 30 chapters available in the proper format 
    (compatible) and they simply "must" have had one guy doing part of the work 
    who was set up wrong.
