When I read this I thought "wow! That's the solution!", but now I'm 
rather disappointed:

I tried to save an eps from Word and converted it with Distiller. 
Reading it in, it turns out to be rather "rough", i. e. you cannot 
really read it, letters are ruined. The same with OOo, and OOo cannot 
convert all the shadows in the table lines, too. So it looks even more ugly.

Do I have an influence on the ready pdf to appear better?
