to my understanding forms can be saved in reader if the "sender" has the 
server extensions in place for this to happen.  several years ago i was 
doing research for a real estate company to put their forms in pdf 
format so they could be filled out online or in the office and saved for 
later printing when necessary.

what i found out was for this to happen you had to purchase a package 
from adobe that cost several thousand dollars.  needless to say the real 
estate company passed on the idea.
