I have seen a few notebooks that were converted to Adobe Acrobat PDF
files.  I would like to be able to do this, but Iam not sure how this was
accomplished.  I hope there is a way to accomplish this without converting
to Tex first.  Is the only way to accomplish this is to do the following:

complete notebook->Tex->Postscript->Distiller->PDF

If someone knows how to convert a complete notebook to Postscript(.ps)
this can then be run through Adobe Acrobat Distiller to get a PDF file. 
Is the following procedure possible?

complete notebook->Postscript->Distiller->PDF

Is software other than Wolfram available or needed to accomplish this?  If
so, is it available for the Mac Platform?  I wish this was possible in
Publicon, but it does not seem to be part of the program - why?

Is this so painful that it is best just to leave the document as a
notebook and make MathReader available to all who are interested?

Any advice or help along thes lines would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Silver Jones
