There are different ways to make PDFs, and lately I've been using this program made by Scan Soft. It doesn't cost much, and it's easy to use, and it makes nice documents -- far as I can tell.

One thing that really irritates me about Adobe products is, that I can never buy them (legally) for just a fraction of their retail cost. I don't get it -- I buy absolutely all my other software that way. Sometimes if I pay market rates for things, I end up getting real confused. I'm not sure why, but part of it is like things I experienced as a child.

KT suggested we make a sample paragraph in different DTP programs to compare type quality using a PDF format. So that's how my questions arose in the thread.

Don't worry, it all makes sense after awhile. Trust me, it does.
