When writing a Word document, you have to address issues like keeping
paragraphs together, not orphaning screen captures or headings. If you
handle these issues in the template, and make sure that you don't
hard-code things like page numbers (see the discussion of widgets on
page 42) but use cross-references, you shouldn't have this problem.
You'll get a much clearer print out, and the layout will appear more
natural, if you do these things to avoid differences in how printers set
up a document than to try to subvert all that with a PDF.
