comment Generating PDF/A-1b compliant documents using pdfx and pdfLaTeX
Well, it would of course nice to create a compliant document directly from TeX or LaTeX. But the good thing about your solution is that it doesn't require proprietary software.

Yes, that's true. Sorry for that. One has to know the length of the input in advance for this solution to work.

comment Combining \obeyspaces and \read
Thanks for your answer, which answers my question. How could I have found out that I need to preserve "normal" (what is the differences to the \obeyspaces?) spaces around the \read syntax to solve problems like this on my own in the future?

comment \expandafter usage and plain TeX programming
CTAN's AroBend ("Around the bend") package contains interesting plain TeX exercises which might help unexperienced users like me to gain a bit more proficiency.

comment Match number sign inside plain TeX loop
Reading # with another character might be a very elegant solution to the problem, but although using LaTeX for quite a while now, I don't know how to do this in plain TeX. Could you point out a bit further on how to do this?
