    I found several decent shareware or trialware drivers, but there must be a free one somewhere. I want to turn Word documents into PDF format. Anybody got any good utilities out there?

    There are several options to convert Word to PDF. For example buy Acrobat
    Writer and select the PDF driver instead of printing to a printer. Another
    option i use is a free tool HTMLDOC. Save the Word file as HTML, this tool
    takes html file(s) and image(s) as input and generates a PDF file (or PS).
    If needed edit the HTML file with a WYSIWYG HTML Editor.
    A lot of other options are available as;
    generate pagenumbers (not available in the HTML file) according the
    selected page format.
    Generate a TOC from the Header info (H1 - H6)
    add headers and footers
    set font and colors
    add body image
    etc.
    You can download HTMLDOC (and/or C source - GNU GPL ) at
