Re: Search index not available

Actually, I don't know about ISO 9660. If it does require you to
use only uppercase letters in filenames, you may be SOL--I 
don't think the UNIX version of Acrobat Reader will recognize 
uppercase filenames as the components of the full text search
index. The other requirements shouldn't be a problem. All of
the components appear to comply with the 8.3 restriction and
consist of only letters and numbers. Once you downcase the
filenames, they work on Windows platforms as well as UNIX (off
the top of my head, we ship on SunOS, Solaris, HP-UX, AIX, DEC
and probably some others I can't think of right now). I'll have
to find out what file systems we use on our CDs.
