Response to: iText in combination with Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat

Here's an example that uses a wysiwyg app (Acrobat or alternative) to create the templates, then extracts the positional and other properties for each field into an XML file for the production merge process. While the example doesn't use iText, it could very easily be converted to do so, at least on the production side (I don't think iText can do the pre-production field properties extraction (yet...)
