Topic: Working with tagged .pdf from VB.NET

I have a VB.NET application. I'd like to have a .pdf file template into which I merge data from my application at runtime.

From what I've gathered, I can do this with XML, which I believe would be my preferred technology, and that I need to create a tagged pdf file in order to do this.

I've installed Adobe Acrobat 5.0 on my development box. I've then brought in an .html document that's a form, it has a text control, etc. on it. I then save this .html file as a .pdf file in Acrobat, but I don't see the "tags" tab as shown on:

I've uninstalled and reinstalled Acrobat, choosing to install everything but Asian language support.

Do I need to use tagged pdfs in order to do this "mail merge" sort of operation? Why don't I see the "tags" tab?
