If this is the solution, I recommend using Adobe's Distiller as the
postscript printer. If the postscript file has a prn extension, just change
it to ps and double-click it. Distiller will then convert it to a PDF. Just
be aware that this procedure may not create the bookmarks that PDFMaker
normally creates from the Word file.
