Hello to all.

I occasionally need to convert MS Word documents to pdf (for emailing to reviewers). A while back I tried a number (of the many) Word to pdf utilities that are out there, and found (to my surprise) quite a difference in the size of resulting pdf file. The same Word document, when converted, varied anywhere from 1.1mb to 6.4mb in size, depending on which converter I used. I'm not sure why such a difference, but when emailing (especially over a 56K modem)it makes a huge difference.

I got the best result (smallest size) with Adobe's on-line conversion service. But now I would like something "local" for convenience, and was wondering if anyone could recommend a good Word XP to pdf conversion utility?

Thanks!
