   It seems like this is a better way to go than trying to recreate
the forms I'm trying to fill in.  I can include the background form as
an image and place text in the specific places on top.
   Unfortunately, pstricks only works with DVI output, not PDF.  And
I'm using the graphicsx package and .png graphics files, so I need a
different way of placing text in specific locations.
   Anyone know of a package that will do this, that's compatible with
PDF output?
