Re: PDF versions

First of all, NEVER use an ASCII editor to "fix" a PDF file. That
normally won't fix anything and more likely will corrupt the PDF file.

Secondly, if all you did was to make the "minor" changes you say you
did, the PDF file retains its ability to be opened by Acrobat Reader 3
without any problems. Whenever you save a file in Acrobat 5, it
sets the version to 1.4 since it does not do any validation to ascertain
if any changes have been made to the document, possibly by third party
plug-ins that would make the document incompatible with any version
earlier than PDF 1.4 (i.e., Acrobat 5).
