Summary description: Creates icon appearances for form buttons

Announcement text:

Use this package to create icon appearances for push buttons, check box 
buttons, and radio buttons form fields.

Package works for pdflatex, lualatex, xelatex, dvips/distiller or 
dvips/ps2pdf; some techniques require Acrobat. Pdfmark-type drivers 
require, depending on the method used, aeb_pro or graphicxsp.

PDF Viewers: Adobe Reader DC, PDF-XChange Editor, and, of course Adobe 
Acrobat. SummatraPDF previews the icon buttons very well.

What's New 2020-06-05: The basic functionality of this package is 
unchanged. In this version, the AP entry is added to the Names dictionary 
of the PDF catalog. This means that the names of the icons imported in the 
embedding environment are known to Acrobat/Adobe Reader/PDF-Exchange 
Editor. It also allows the icons to be manipulated using JavaScript 
methods, the most significant of which is the Doc.getIcon(<icon-name>) 
method.  Revised examples illustrate Doc.getIcon().
