Jan, this file doesn't seem to be a complete stack -- the 'bang' and 
other header stuff isn't there and

go URL "http://www.quartam.com/tutorials/pdfmetadata.rev"
or
go URL "http://www.quartam.com/tutorials/pdfmetadata.legacy.rev"

gets rejected by Rev with a 'no such card' error...

>You can download the result from:
