    Dear Ken,

    would be very helpful to have:

    1) exact diagnostics by Acrobat (if it crashes, then it is an Acrobat bug, isn't it --
    but we are still ready and willing to try and find a solution)
    2) a test sample consisting of
       - source .fo
       - font set and configuration
       - produced pdf.

    If you can provide us with the sample, please
    -- try to keep it as small as possible (I am behind a slow link)
    -- send it off-list to (and disregard the autoreply if you get it --
    we'll receive your message anyway)

    Thank you,
    David Tolpin
