    gnv64 1988 version shows some corruption wrt background of many pages. Seem to have same issue with few more documents. Haven’t cross checked if these are specific to gnv’s documents, may be some incompatibility between tool used for generation and what I use for viewing (gnome evince) – It says Error: Invalid Font Weight.

    1984 version is fine.
