Hi Duff,

It should be interesting to see what I find. I am also looking at Daisy
too, but with Daisy and ePub looking to try and merge that complicates
things-or maybe it really helps me!

Oh, I didn't know that about PDF 2.0...good to know. So that would mean
that the Daisy tags could be used for Iphone, Android and Mac users...hmmm
that I like...

How about PDF/A or UA? I know you know about those things...I usually use
PDF/A but have been testing PDF/UA as well. Any information you can provide
about those is hugely appreciated!

Cheers

Lisa
