There is no point refusing to do something if for you personally it is
the best solution.  Chopping off nose to spite one's face and so on
comes to mind.

I meant to print it at the library rather than filling it in there.  I
am just trying to help, not suggesting that the current situation is
ideal.  Apparently, though, with Adobe not publishing the format it
makes it difficult, to say to least, for an open source solution.
HMRC should not be using a format that requires proprietary software.

So has that worked around your problem?
