[texhax] writeble PDF

Dear colleagues,

I'm searching for a way to generate writable PDF files out of LaTeX. I did
a Google search which didn't prove to be rewarding. Most of the links I
found point to Open Office.

However, I'm building huge lists and tables by converting data that have
been collected via form entries in XHTML pages by processing them with
Perl, thereby generating TeX-Output. Every necessity to handle the resul-
ting files interactively is not welcome - or, due to the number of files, simply
not feasible, for that matter.

Therefore, I need a package that I can include in my LaTeX files just to en-
able users to edit some fields of these files. Its nothing fancy what the users
have to be able to modify, just setting some checkmarks and writing one or
two paragraphs.

Do you know of any package that I can include in my LaTeX files to define
writable parts of the document?

Many thanks for your assistance.

Best regards
