The version my mother has, which is the most up to date version for
her windows vista system, doesn't, for most of the documents people
send her.  She's absolutely stuck with the font choices somebody
else made for everybody, and they aren't right for her.

And this is way it is with the bulk of problems I end up having
to deal with from people who get pdfs and have problems reading
them --  what they want to do is outside of the range of what
they are allowed to do.
