Re hypertext/links and price:

Hypertext in Word 97 converts to PDF when Word is used with PDFWriter
(US$30 from **AND** PDFMarker (US$0, same URL). You get
many (not all) of the goodies of the ~US$300 Distiller/Exchange/etc.
package for 1/10th the price. FrameMaker 5.5 WITH the Acrobat package
MSRP=<US$900, but I understand there are places offering major

MSRP=Manufacaturer's Suggested Retail Price

If you don't need Frame's composition abilities - if Word does the job
- the $30 investment may be all you need.
