It appears that in order to extract data from a pdf form using 
source="#PDF.content#" the form would have to contain a button defined to 
submit as a PDF, requiring the client to have Adobe Acrobat ($) rather than 
Reader (free).  To get around this you can submit the form with an http submit 
button and extract data using form.fieldnames but doing so prevents you from 
being able to dynamically determine the structure of the form.  Has anyone 
figured out a way around this?
