Darren, thanks for the suggestion.  As you see from my next post, tlug
was cc'd by accident--basically, what happened was a long time ago, I
was experimenting with folder hooks so that anything sent while in the
tlug mbox would go to tlug--playing around with something else, I
accidentally uncommented it.  

However my friend will probably be grateful for the suggestion--he's
involved in scientific research and frequently has to apply for
government grants, so has to do a lot of work with pdfs. 

Japanese isn't an issue, this would all be in English.  I'm not sure
what the default charset would be, probably UTF-8 as he has occasional
use for other languages.

Joyce: Oh. So, do you, uh, live here in town?
