Topic: Comments in Reader 6.0 for documents created in Acrobat 5.0

I am trying to understand whether it is possible to add/read comments in Reader 6 for PDFs created in Acrobat 5. The reason I ask is this:

When I view the Document Properties/Security in Reader V6.0.2 it states Commenting: Not allowed - this is despite the fact that I get no errors loading the Annots.api annotations plug-in.

When I view the Document Security dialog in Reader V5.0 it states Authoring Comments and Form Fields: Allowed - this is despite the fact that Reader 5 does not appear to have an annotations plug-in.

Actually, there appears to be no Comments toolbar option in either Reader 5 or 6, so am I barking up the wrong tree anyway - that is, do the end users not have the ability to add their own comments in any case?

I am very confused. Appreciate any help that might be on offer.
