Appendix H: Compatibility and Implementation Notes

Appendix H. Compatibility and Implementation Notes

The goal of the Acrobat family of products is to enable people to exchange and view electronic documents easily and reliably. Ideally, this means that any Acrobat viewer application should be able to display the contents of any PDF file, even if the PDF file was created long before or long after the viewer application. Of course, new versions of viewer applications are introduced to provide additional capabilities not present before. Furthermore, beginning with Acrobat 2.0, viewer applications may accept plug-in extensions, making some Acrobat viewers more capable than others, depending on what extensions are present.

Both viewer applications and PDF have been designed to enable users to view everything in the document that the viewer application understands and to ignore or inform the user about objects not understood. The decision whether to ignore or inform the user is made on a feature-by-feature basis.
