Uh, that's not just a Word problem. As I understand it, that's
inherent to any Windows program -- Frame or PageMaker included.
(Dunno about Quark, but I'd guess the same thing.)

I've had decent luck sending PostScript files based on Word to service
agencies (using their printer driver), but that was before Acrobat --
I'd agree that's a safer solution. But that's pretty much true for
any program.

Or am I missing what you're saying?
