(Not sure if you ever received a response to this...)

I'm in the process of working on this. It looks like a problem
with the program we use to create the pdf/postscript variants
from a single-file HTML representation (the program is htmldoc).
Anyway, we're in the process of switching over to a different
mechanism for creating pdf/postscript. Bear with us a bit until
I/we get the process fully functional...Thanks for your patience...
