Ahh - you're right, of course, Dick - I had forgotten in the middle of this
that the poster was using Word. In Frame, you _can_ include the Acrobat
data when you print to a PS file using the Distiller printer driver. Word
doesn't have this option. My mistake - thanks.

:) That's okay. These kinds of things are teaching moments, and I figured
it doesn't hurt to include other common situations that might cause a
similar (though not exactly the same) error. Teach a person to fish, and
all that...
