One of the items on my to do list is to come up with a better method of
generating PDF versions of the spec. I will look at some combination of
html2ps and Acrobat Web Capture. One advantage that I have, being an Adobe
employee, is that I might be able to get access to pre-release versions of
enhancements to web capture.

Right now, all I do is Web Capture (using Acrobat 4) the HTML version of
the spec, which results in all of the problems which Dave is reporting.

So, this will get fixed, but whether it will be fixed for the next public
draft depends on the timing of the next draft and whether there are higher
priority editing tasks.
