Date: Tue, 22 Dec 2009 08:46:50 -0500 has a PDF to Word Converter (for $30) that
claims to retain the formatting in the converted Word doc -- graphics,
tables, columns, etc. Haven't tried it myself.

There are cheaper methods that will leave you with text box artifacts --
but those can be scrubbed for free.
