buzzed, B&W

I hate PDF

Argh, I just spent close to the past half hour trying to get a PDF formatted correctly. Apparently if you use gradients or fills, Acrobat chokes and converts to grey scale.

The frustrating bit here is that sometimes it works - so in my file that had maybe a dozen or so graphs from Excel, with some gradients and things, about half of them were pretty, the others were in greyscale.
