exactly! yes... but it is with existing PD - gov forms. if the format
wasn't allready dictated to us, we would both just use OOo (all though
no versioning). The link you sent was very helpful, I was confused on
the PDF streghts of Scrubus and had the wrong expectations.

I will check this out when I get there. I am suspecting it is troubles
with having a program registry... we install then reinstall but
windows it just to messy.... Ill be taking my partner a linux live cd
too :D

Thanks for the Inkscape suggestion with it we could just have an SVG
with the PD image embedded.... should we need to, we could edit via a
xml editor. Not too long ago I needed to set the tracking of some
text... it wasn't available through the program, so i wiped out the
xml and set it myself of course, i had a book :) ) - open/free formats
are sweet
