Hi, David,

My preference would be "PDFs" where it's plural but I think it's  
better to use "PDF document" or similar ("PDF" as qualifier not as  
noun). I see one instance in the PDF tech notes. Are there others?

The only instance I find of "PDF's" is in PDF11, Example 4:  
"...elements use PDF's logical structure..." In this case, it's  
possessive so the apostrophe is correct. Are there other cases of  



Quoting David MacDonald <david100@sympatico.ca>:
