ZM:: "one wonders if it will be necessary in most cases to provide a PDF
document in an alternative format."

WL: If the original posting of the document doesn't provide a hook to
the text *as text* the answer is a rather unequivocal YES. To expect an
OCR to decipher much of what gets lost when the document is
"photographed" is vain hope, indeed.
