         PLEASE don't use the term "optimized" for the linearization of a 
PDF - they are NOT the same thing.  (in fact, in most cases linearization 
UNOPTIMIZES a PDF, making it larger by duplicating/replicating data).

         The correct term is either linearized (the technical term) or 
"Fast Web View Enabled" (the end user term).

         Is there a reason to treat dates as strings and not as actual 
dates?  So that they can then be reformatted using the user's locale?
