I find this biased too ;-)

Until yesterday I didn't even know that people were still using
Acrobat 5.05, so I think "or readable by alarger fraction" could be
replaced by "and not readable by a small margin"... but that's where
we certainly disagree...

Version 6.0 of AR reads PDF 1.5. I don't know about AA.

My bad, I tested with AR.

Thank you,
