But you can create a PDF with embedded fonts (the default for PDFs), and 
that is the recommended way of distributing documents when you don't 
want others to change them. You cannot generate PDFs with Microsoft 
Word, although (for Windows) you can get free add-ons like pdf995 which 
allow you to create PDFs from any Windows application.
