This is wonderful news! Thank you very, very much!

I tested hyperref 6.77p with a fairly complex document. The PDF file  
produced is not PDF/A compliant, as expected. But now Acrobat  
Professional 8 does not have any problems converting it directly to  
PDF/A-1b (with sRGB output intent).

It does have problems converting to PDF/A-1a or to -1b using other  
output intent profiles, but I believe the format that works is what  
almost everyone needs.

Thanks again,

David Rendon
