Topic: Reader 6 BUGS so far (sorry, 'issues')...

We use online, fillable PDF forms extensively in our insurance company's web site for our agents (serving the entire state of Texas), and have so far found a couple of alarming "issues" with Adobe Reader 6:
1. We have a form with a zip code field that is a text field with the option to 'limit to 5 characters' (so a 9 byte number will be truncated). This works fine in version 5, but in 6 it disregards the limit and displays all nine characters! And what's more, if the field type is set to 'Special, Zip Code (5 digits)' we get an error message that pops up in version 6 saying the data doesn't match the field type (this didn't happen in previous versions)
My greatest concern is that everytime Adobe releases ANY upgrade we will have to do a lot of testing to make sure we don't have problems. I'm VERY disappointed with Adobe's effort on this!
