Abstract
PDF has a rich specification. But Adobe Distiller does not exploit all these specifications. We’ll demonstrate how pdfTeX can create useful PDF files that are difficult or impossible to create using other technologies. Examples are: PDFs showing differences in two TeX source files; PDFs with useful pop-up tools; and a simple but useful composite PDF for comparing two nearly identical PDF files.
