Re the index: AFAIK there is simply no way to convert a Word index into
hyperlinked bookmarks in a PDF. Perhaps there's an add-on package, but
it's simply not possible with the standard Acrobat PDFMaker or Acrobat
Distiller or the Acrobat PDF print driver.


Wow! I guess I owe an apology to Nitro-PDF (my Frugal Converter). Now
I'm interested, might see if manually-inserted bookmarks make it through
the conversion process. As I said, my folks are still at the "there are
words on paper? And they actually make sense? That's new and
different!" stage. I'm sure we'll become more technologically
sophisticated once the shine of this new program wears off -- so I
should start looking in those areas now.
