Andrew and Mary,

Could you make a pass over the PDF techniques and apply the following
changes to make them more clearly tool-neutral:

* Put a boilerplate caveat on each example of using a specific
authoring or editing tool (e.g. "This example is shown with Adobe
Acrobat. There are other software products that perform similar
functions. See the list of other software tools [link to appropriate
PDF technology overview section].

* Take the specific Adobe product naming out of the test procedures,
and use the generic terms: PDF creator, PDF converter, PDF editor, or
PDF accessibility checker instead of naming specific Adobe products.

Let us know if you find places where this doesn't work.

Thanks, Loretta
