Hi Marguerite,

this does not only brake profile baseline, but also profile main.

Of course these profiles do not deliver the same quality 
as high444. 

However there are millions of devices out there which 
require baseline or main profile. 
These are almost all mobile devices running Android or iOS.

I have to search now for an older version and install it, 
and probably many many others too.
