many years ago I successfully converted specific PDFs (they were all created by the same
generator and used a fixed set of fonts and drawing primitives)
The pipeline consisted of ghostscript to translate the pdf into uncompressed,
a perl script to convert the graphic instructions into ming source, and finally the perl
version of ming to create swf.
The resulting file is made of lines, areas, and static text..
Of course text could be reconstructed with the help of a decompiler, but it is possible to
generate the file so that no character / glyph index relation is present
The procedure was a bit tedious, and so the next time the same files were requested,
I built a solution that hooked into the publication process even before pdf generation
We've had very good luck with pdf2swf minus a little trouble with some PDFs generated from PPT files that used certain background textures. (Sadly, I don't recall the specifics about those troublesome textures.)

I have an AIR client that connects using messaging to a blazeds server.
When a message is received according to the contents in the message I
change the STATE of the window. The problem that I have is the following:
In some computers, although the message is received the UI is not
updated. This only happens the first time a new STATE is loaded and then
it is ok. A trick to resolve this problem is to resize the window 1
pixel each time a message is received. However this is not an acceptable
Do you have any ideas on this? It drives me crazy!!!!
Thanks in advance!!!
ps. I already tried validateNOW() and invalidateDisplay list when
receiving each message but nothing!
