Description of problem:
Letters in pdf documents viewed in xpdf is adjusted slightly
vertically up or down. The easiest way to describe this is to attach
a screenshot which I do below.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. View pdf file in xpdf
2. Look carefully at the letters in the words
3. Observe that some are aligned just below the line while others aren't.
Actual Results: Some letters are adjusted slightly vertically with
respect to others. The effect is make the page look very odd.
Expected Results: The letters should all be aligned horizontally on
the same line (as they are in acroread).

I have circled some of the obvious problems.
i cannot reproduce this problem in current FC2 and FC3 test3.
The "Warning: Cannot convert string ..." is now fixed in 3.00-9 in fc3.
