This was  *definitely  *not a bitmapped image.  Pure text/box/lines, and
some code that copies single fields to others.  You can see it at
http://www.uscourts.gov/uscourts/FormsAndFees/Forms/Bankruptcy/B_22C2.pdf

I got an image that was the full form, formatted and with the lines.  I
couldn't do anything with it in livecode, though.

And I haven't managed to do it again :(
