Cheers, I'll try it sometime.  I still don't know why the .ps files
produced by FireFox won't convert properly to .pdf though, even Acrobat
Distiller mangles them.

Yes it does, and it works fine.  But I do find printing to file from OO
and then using ps2pdf produces a smaller file than exporting directly
from OO.  Strange.
