    Lori – one of the features mentioned in the marketing write-up for Acrobat 8 and that I’ve seen in the app talks about enabling the review/commenting features for Acrobat Reader users. I have a couple questions about this which hopefully you don’t mind answering.

    1. Does it work in context of the web browser plugin for Acrobat as well as offline? In 7, it worked, but only for offline reviews.

    2. Does this only work in Acrobat 8 or does enabling the commenting features then also allow web-based reviews in Reader 7 as well?
