Summary: Synchronization: pdfsync.sty embedded (1)

Initial Comment:
To the administrator, please remove the preceding patch submission

The purpose is to implement some extensions very useful for 
synchronization, both forwards and backwards. Synchronization is the 
ability for a text editor and a pdf viewer to work together, displaying the 
same thing at the same time. For example, a text editor can ask a pdf 
viewer to display and outline the character in the output corresponding to 
the character under the cursor.
Attached is a zip file containing diff against version 1.40.4, explanations 
and demonstrations in
synchronize.readme/synchronize+frames.pdf

PS: I have problems with my connection

Synchronize3.zip is available.
It just adds a flag in the .sync file to indicate whether dvi or pdf mode was used.
So far I have found only one problem, using dvips or dvipdf with a concrete 
offset (-x and -y options) will break the synchronization. If such a filter is gentle 
enough to indicate that it used a custom offset, then viewers can take this into 
account and the synchronization is not broken. Viewers will check the above 
mentionned flag to look for customized offset.

Synchronize 2.zip is a version extending the previous one. Now synchronization 
works the same for both dvi and pdf output modes.
