A while ago I installed on my computer Go2PDF, a free PDF creator. All I had to do was install the program and the Go2PDF print driver was ready to go. Want to make a PDF out of a Word document, webpage, or graphic? Simply print using Go2PDF. It works exactly like a printer, except the finished product is a PDF file. It was the best PDF program I'd seen.

Well, that was then and this is now. A kind viewer sent me a link for a much better freeware PDF printer, CutePDF Writer. It works like Go2PDF, except it puts no watermark on your document. It's free to use for as long as you like. The only hitch is that it no longer comes with Ghostscript, the freeware PostScript-to-PDF utility, which it requires. However, CutePDF will automatically download and install Ghostscript if and when you need it during installation. Now when you want to turn any document, graphic, or webpage into a PDF, just print it out using CutePDF Writer. It's my new favorite.

I've used it to print out web pages and found it very useful so far. :)

Openoffice.org also has Excellent PDF integration. Any document you make in OOo can be converted to PDF.
