Rendering to PDF is easy once Acrobat is installed - from whatever
package you use its as easy as printing. Choosing a suitable word
processor or DTP package for construction of the document is really
dependent on what the project demands. A brochure or promotion with full
colour, complex layout etc. would benefit from full DTP in Quark or
similar. A dissertation, or similar, with indexes, annotations,
footnotes etc. would be far better produced in M$ Word or such. Horses
for courses.
You could even produce the front plates in Quark, the body in Word, and
then combine them into one PDF document after rendering if you so
choose. If the source document is to be handed over to a 3rd party, or
edited later, you are better off choosing a package with broad support.
Without specifics (which I would not expect you to discuss on list) its
hard to define any solid option.
