Anyone familiar with the major differences between these two versions of

Primarily, I want to create PDFs from Word documents with these features:

1) Retain hyperlinks from the Word document (both navigational hyperlinks
to go to another part of the file and external links to go to web pages)
2) Retain the hyperlink capability for the TOC (i.e. click on section
heading or page number in the TOC and go to that page in the PDF)
3) Ability to convert Word style headings (Heading 1, Heading 2, etc) to
PDF bookmarks. With bookmarks, the reader gets a view of the document's TOC
in the sidebar of the PDF viewer no matter where they are in the document.
The user can click on the bookmarks and go to that section of the PDF.

If I can do all these things with Acrobat Standard, I would rather not
spend the extra money for the Pro version. Advice?
