Topic: Make Acessible, PDF Optimizer quirks

We had a file that gave odd results (sequence of object layering was swapped, putting graphics on top of text, instead of underlaying) when Made Accessible with version 5, so I tried version 6. It did a better job, avoiding the object sequence reshuffle. However, when I used PDF Optimizer to make it PDF 1.4 compatible, the tags root was not reachable in Acrobat 5 (which we need, for the person tweaking the tags is using Acrobat 5). When I did not use PDF Optimizer, it would open and display the Tags root in Acrobat 5, but we'd get the not compatible message at file open time.

Does anybody have any suggestions - is there any known bugs with PDF Optimizer/tags/versions?

Why eBooks and mobile devices don't (yet) pose an existential threat to the PDF

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
