Do you preflight PDF files?

In March 2009 visitors to this site were asked if they used a preflight application, tool or plug-in to validate incoming or outgoing files. Below are the results. If you are wondering what preflighting is, there is of course a page on this site that covers all the basics. It is the digital equivalent of walking around your airplane before taking off and checking the overall condition of the machine.
