Bonjour Florence,

There is something to read here.

First link is in French

The Rogers digital ads gives a taste of real life use

The following article answers your question. I guess we could link 
this to the wiki. (Why re-write this, it's cristal clear.) IMO this 
is a very useful and thorough information on PDFs.

Of course, google has lots more, including the Adobe site.

Au plaisir!
