Okay, so: please recommend me some kind of free software to convert a Word document to a PDF file. I went to download.com and got the most highly-rated one, Foxit Reader, but then it turned out that you'd have to pay for the Creator part, and even if you just used the free evaluation version it would put a watermark on each page of your PDF and I'm sorry, I'm not selling that, that's just tacky. I would keep browsing the listings, but I'd rather ask y'all than go through the download-hate it-uninstall process umpteen more times. So. All I want is something to turn my heavily-footnoted Word document into a PDF file that will preserve the hypertext links and aforementioned footnoting. Gah.
What with all the formatting headaches, I'm probably not going to be ready to go by Monday. But we're still talking about the home stretch, rather than a month from now.
Also, while it's going to be as simple and unfancy as possible, because at $5 for 125 pages and 460+ notes (sample footnote), I think you can handle that, I have decided that the title page will say,
THE ANNOTATED MOVIES IN FIFTEEN MINUTES1
I'm just easily amused at this point, I think.
