    Yes, I see the difference: we encode the file name simply as a string,
    while FrameMaker packs it into a /Filespec object. We have no problems
    implementing it this way, even though I see nothing in the PDF Reference
    that invalidates our current scheme. But you know, PDF things are better
    done the way Acrobat understands them, not the way the PDF spec
    is written :-). Thank you for the input; we will do it for the next release.
