This is great to know! Thanks!

Did you try to print or save as pdf from

These are my results in informal test:

In Acrobat 5, when i modify and try to save the file
it warns about an error that could not be repaired.
And the file do not save...

In Adobe ilustrator, this pdf is dismissed as
damaged and is not opened.

Freehand opens this pdf without problems.

I agree. Because of the encodings required by text
it takes more time to test and implement correctly.

Of course, if you could save these same set of vectors
graphics as pdf from other applications, like
ghostscript, corel, indesign, open office, etc..., 
you could compress all of them and send to my mail 
for inspection.

If we want to make this adaptation happen faster, 
everybody could grab a copy of the pdf reference and 
start reading and experimenting. ;-)

Thanks in advance.
