I'm sure you are tired of me by now, but here goes :p

1) In the PDF Reference, page 121 (143 literal), it says this about tabs:
A name specifying the tab order to be used for annotations on the page. The possible values are R (row order), C (column order), and S (structure order). See Section 8.4, “Annotations,” for details.

When I "see section for detials" it says adobe exports the annots on the pdf in the order of tab order to preserve backwards compatability, but where is the "current compatability" of knowing the actuial tab number?

and 2) What is the CORRECT way to translate coordinates of objects from user space to device space. I am trying to convert the coordinates to a 96dpi res system. The current math I use was taken from datalogic's examples, but the results are not 100% correct (and the math itself looks crazy). There has got to be a standardized way of converting the coordinates.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
