Response from the Working Group
================================
We have updated the descriptions of Use Row Order and Use Column Order to
be consistent with the current documentation, which is clearer. We have
also changed the example to set the tab order to "Use Document Structure".

This is an Acrobat 9 example, so there may be inconsistencies with the
current Acrobat X Pro user interface, such as the additional Tab Order
option. We are unable to commit to update these examples when newer
versions of the tools are released, as these are only examples of how to
use PDF authoring and repair tools.
