Oh, I forgot about that. It's an IE 6 bug, IIRC, that has a folks PO'd over
on comp.text.pdf. And you're correct that a lot of people will run into the
same difficulty.

And I respond:
Now, Dick. EVERYONE KNOWS that Microsoft doesn't have bugs! They have
"features"! This is a "feature" that allows you to use a less-capable,
older version of Acrobat so that you don't have to remember all those pesky
new capabilities and features of the newer version! Microsoft was ONLY
thinking of us when they did that! Really, they were! ;-P
