Had cause to make a PDF this weekend, wanting to create an electronic document that would retain formatting and look the way that I wanted it to for all eternity (bwahahahahah!) I used PDFOnline.com and was more than happy with the result. You upload your doc, specify a filename, and enter an e-mail address for delivery of the PDF. Pretty soon, the thing is in your e-mail as an attachment and can be downloaded to your desktop. Easy and quick. There's a 2mb file size limit, so that transcription of War & Peace that you're working on won't fly, but otherwise you should be in good shape. Give it a whirl if you're looking to convert a document to a PDF on the fly.
