Ah, but Adobe no longer sells Acrobat Exchange as a stand-alone
application. It is only available as a component part of the full
3.0 package or bundled with other Adobe applications (most notably
FrameMaker). This Adobe policy makes very little sense to me,
because the Exchange application is essential to the ability to use
PDF format for electronic review of documents via the Notes feature.
