Topic: Q: DOC 2 PDF retaining web links

I have a document with numerous links. These links form complex URLs for searches on a website database, so rather than have the entire URL appear on the page for each link, I have something like a 'click here' text that links to the URL.
I've found that with Acrobat 7 Standard, I can create PDFs with links if the link is written out (actually I think it is Acrobat Reader that recognizes text as a link). When I convert my document to PDF, the links show as nice blue, underlined text, but the link is lost.
Is there any way to overcome this?
I'm open to other PDF software, but have no funds to purchase at present. Currently using: Adobe Acrobat 7 Standard, MS Word 2000 and 2003. Also can convert to other formats - regularly using OpenOffice. DOC actually originates as HTML with extensive use of CSS, so a converting from a web browser would also be acceptable if CSS formatting is retained. (Acrobat's create from web page messes with font size and img formatting)
