Yes, I have a way to go directly from Word to PDF. But, it won't be useful for many people. Mac OS X allows the print output from any application to be saved as a PDF file. In fact, I often use this to share results of an analysis I've done in Mathematica with colleagues who don't use or have Mathematica. I've not seen problems with fonts using this approach. On ocassion I have seen differences in the way the resulting PDF file displays using Apple's built in Preview application and Acrobat Reader on a PC.
