As Pablo wrote, this just won't happen.
It is very rare that *anyone* delivers both screen and print versions
of a PDF file (Pragma ADE excepted).

This makes me think: Is there some "standard" way for a PDF to contain
both versions?

I did struggle recently with an Adobe-specific PDF (which I could not
even read using Acroread 9) that contained two, in fact three,
1. A form
2. Instructions
3. A page that was shown on non-Adobe readers

I do not know enough about PDF and different readers to know how to
include several versions, but this would be quite useful.
