Would a PDF format be an acceptable compromise? Richard, you can use
GhostScript/GhostView to generate a PDF from your Word document, without
having to pay hundreds of dollars for the full version of Adobe Acrobat.

I recommend an earlier version of Ghostview - the latest one by Ghostgum
Software is shareware, not free. I'll send you a zip file of it from
work (where we use it extensively, even though we also have Adobe
Acrobat available).
