/*
 *
 * PDF/X-4 starter:
 * Create PDF/X-4 conforming output with layers and transparency
 *
 * A low-level layer is created for each of several languages, as well
 * as an image layer. 
 *
 * The document contains transparent text which is allowed in
 * PDF/X-4, but not earlier PDF/X standards.
 *
 * Required software: PDFlib/PDFlib+PDI/PPS 9
 * Required data: font file, image file, ICC output intent profile
 *                (see www.pdflib.com for output intent ICC profiles)
