Tried both utilities below last night at home on a newsletter I produce
as volunteer for a non-profit. All things being equal (which they
appeared to be at first blush), my vote now goes to PDFCreator because

According to Gizmo's "46 Best-ever Freeware Utilities" list, the best
free PDF Writer is currently PDFCreator. Gizmo's second choice is the
free, cut-down version of CutePDF Writer.
