Heh. Thanks Deborah (and all else who responded.) It seems that my company is going to continue to use "Acrobat file" despite the fact that *everybody* on two lists has agreed with you (and my personal feeling) that "PDF file" is the right way to go!

Inertia, it seems, outweighs rationality. Sigh.
