Assuming that NBC and Kevin are correct about the court ALWAYS adding the case labels and page numbers then the preferred work flow would be:
1. Secretary types page 1 of document 15-1.pdf in WORD and then exports the page to PDF.
2. She then downloads the WH LFCOLB PDF image from:
3. She then opens both PDF pages in Adobe Acrobat and merges the two pages to create court document 15-1.pdf.
Of course, a more careful researcher would have checked the actual metadata
/Creator (Preview) /Producer (Mac OS X 10.6.7 Quartz PDFContext) /Title (http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/rss_viewer/birth-certificate-long-form.pdf) /Keywords () /ModDate (D:20120504150447-07'00') /Subject () /CreationDate (D:20110427120924Z)
So the document has a title reflecting the URL. Downloading using Google Chrome replaces the title with the the URL and the Creator with Chrome and creation and modification date with today’s date. So that’s not it. Same for Firefox.
Very interesting… Of course, scanning into acrobat would have shown different tags.
