I think I understand what you mean. You recommend I should put up a
webpage that parses the XML data returned by our customer and displays
it in an on-screen facsimile of the .PDF form that the Sales Rep sent to
the customer. Is that a correct understanding of your recommendation?

If that's the "best" solution that exists, then I don't think it really
is a solution for this particular issue. The customer needs a .PDF form
they can save or print and refer to during the life cycle of the
product, and I don't see why the Sales Rep shouldn't have access to that
exact same .PDF form with the exact same information exactly the way the
customer entered it. Sales is specifying they need access to both
electronic and hardcopy versions of the information (for convenience and
legal purposes I suppose), and I'd like to make both versions look
identical...hence the .PDF option.

Am I thinking along the right lines, or am I being stubborn and trying
to make the oval peg go in the square hole again?

However, perhaps I'm going about trying to get that the wrong way. My
initial tests were to save the form I created as a "Dynamic PDF Form
File." I'm going to try re-sending my test form as a "Static PDF Form
File" and see what happens.
