Sorry, Art, but I think you're misinterpreting the matrix. The shared review
capability that Acrobat Standard supports requires all reviewers to have
Acrobat and not just Adobe Reader. The minimum version that allows you
to create a PDF that can be annotated by people who have only Adobe
Reader is Acrobat Pro. So you can either buy the Standard version of
Acrobat for all reviewers, or pop for one copy of Acrobat Pro for the
tech writer preparing docs for review.
The Standard version of Acrobat 8.0 simply does not have the "Enable
for Commenting and Analysis in Adobe Reader" command.
