Just so that some of the downsides of Joe's arguments get
to see some light ;-), I thought the following

    http://www.complang.tuwien.ac.at/anton/why-not-pdf.html

might interest the many posters to this thread. Check out
the links at the bottom of that webpage, too. This just
might generate a more balanced critique of Joe's work in
this area.

As a matter of form and FWIW, I'll add that I don't agree
with much of what is purported there, being a very pro-PDF
person myself.
