Hi Chris,

I didn't make a *sweeping generalization* . In fact I mentioned that for text pdf
the size actually comes down.

I've been a vivid user of pdf2swf since 2 - 3 years.
After upgrading to ver. 0.9.1 I find that source pdf's with image content get converted into very large sized swf's.
Eg : In one instance the same pdf that used to result in swf's of size 500 KB has now become 3 MB !!
But for pdfs with text content the reverse is seen. i.e swfs have become smaller. Am I missing something here please ?

I was merely refuting a sweeping generalisation made by
Sameer and yourself, namely, that later versions of pdf2swf
produce larger swf's than previous versions.  I found that
not to be *always* the case.

Obviously whatever you happen to be doing has the opposite
effect.  Hopefully a reason will found.  Perhaps you'd care
to humour us, and post yet another example.
