Aren't there other PDF size factors, in addition to embedded fonts? I'm
thinking of settings for compression, bookmarks, choice of PDF
generation software (Acrobat is not the only solution), etc.

(And by the way, two-page Word files are not "invariably large." Their
sizes are variable. Factors include change tracking, Fast Save settings,
floating/anchored graphics, embedded/linked graphics, use of styles, use
of fields, and, of course, good old file corruption. Rule #1 for large
Word files is, Maggie the document first, then we'll talk.)
