Title Fixes for some common PDF to PDFA conversion validation errors
Detailed description From PDFBox Preflight:
Syntax Error: invalid float range in Number operand

From Adobe Preflight
Syntax problem: Real value out of range (too high) (also commonly get the other extreme - too low)
Solution to this issue was to use PDFA2 as the original PDFA1b spec is unable to cope with large numbers either negative or positive. The error in this case was caused by a bezier curve with a high value.

A detailed description of the Solution. Feel free to include links to further information (eg. OPF blog posts!). Note that a Solution is a specific digital preservation application of a software tool or tools to a particular Issue with a particular Dataset. It might for example be a scripted tool, or a myExperiment workflow
