Why some tools are more
forgiving of bad PDFs?

Martin Bailey gives some thoughts on the Global Graphics blog about compliance, compatibility, and why some tools are more forgiving of bad PDFs.

He reports on Global Graphics’ nearly 25 years of experience with native PDF RIPs (Harlequin). At that time, developers were faced with the question of whether to strictly implement the PDF specification and thus risk not being able to process many PDFs (even from well-known creators), or whether to pragmatically achieve the best possible result even with poorly built PDFs.
