I don't. That's exactly what I was hoping to do, but I couldn't 
find a way to do it (without expensive commercial solutions, or 
without using hand-crafted PDF 'forms').

I've got a form config which $customer can change (add fields, 
etc) and I've included X/Y coords as part of the config. That 
was the only way I could get it working in limited time I've got.

I can share code with you if it will help (maybe offlist would 
be better).
