If the docs are in anything that OpenOffice will open (which is just about everything) OO has a feature that lets you save to PDF, and it is available for the low-low price of. . . absolutely FREE!

And if you act now, you won't be bothered with licensing issues or other problems as associated with the folks at Redmond.

Check out PrimoOnline at http://online.primopdf.com/ .  They claim to
support about 300 file types for converting to PDF.  You upload the file,
and they email the PDF to you.

I have not tried them, nor have I read their terms of service.
