I had a quick look at the rmannot web-page, since I have been interested
in this aspect of latex/pdf presentation for some time. Unfortunately,
as far as I can tell, the real stumbling block to those of us in the
linux community is that the pdf creation needs to be done with Acrobat
Distiller, so there is no way for me to create such a pdf other than
find a Windows machine, pay for Distiller, gather together all my source
files, media, files, etc, and do my work in Windows.
