I don't really understand why someone would be able to open a PDF file
in Acrobat Reader (for example), and yet be unable to print it. I'm
assuming that printers don't generally understand the PDF format
directly, and that Acrobat converts it to Postscript before sending it
to the printer driver. Is that too simplistic a view?
