just for you Erik [:D]
Imagine your PDF is a parrot...Well some people like to keep a parrot in their room, and other people might like the idea of a having parrot but not like some of the features of having a parrot in the room like flying, squawking and cleaning up the mess. So some might choose to have an ex-parrot stuffed (EPS) which looks the same but is easier to fit in with the furniture. Other people may find the thought of a stuffed parrot a bit disturbing and would be happy with just a picture of a parrot.

Does this analogy help at all?[*][*][*][*][*]

Just a note on stuffing parrots. It may be that when you decide you're the sort of person who needs an ex-parrot stuffed you are careful in the choice of taxidermist. Should you take it to the circus performer who lives in a mud-brick dwelling, or, should you use the guy who smiles like the villain played by Richard Kiel in the Bonds The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker.
BTW apologies in advance to Emma for the deliberately contrived bad grammar in that last sentence.[:D]

Is ex-parrot stuffed a dead format?
