Subject Re: Compression parameter

You didn't say whether you'd tried it, but it is of course possible to use Java's Zip 
classes to compress the PDF. The client of course ends up with a compressed PDF which 
needs to be uncompressed before use.  If you do it right you *might* be able to get 
Netscape to unzip it for you.

Of course you may already know that.

PS - Images used to be inserted into the PDF as uncompressed bitmaps, but I believe
they are compressed now.
