Thank you :-)

Well, I believe you are right.

Thank you, I have now installed it to try it out. However, the free version 
keeps asking me to register each time I open the application...

I am very impressed with the CutePDF Writer 
<http://www.cutepdf.com/Products/CutePDF/writer.asp>
and after having used that I am amazed that Adobe still tries to pass off 
creating PDF-files off as a major thing (in their promotion of their online
creation service). Their rhetorics are as close to dishonest as you can get 
without lying, when they try to persuade me to install the Yahoo Toolbar to 
do something that I can do offline.

Now that I was forced to install the Yahoo Toolbar I tried it out. But it 
doesn't even work. It keeps searching for its buttons for the toolbar 
without finding them, and searches only return error messages. Fortunately 
it was easy to uninstall (the visual parts).

This is true if you choose to install all extras during installation. 
However, I have found that it is not so bad if you leave out all those extra 
options. I cannot remember for sure if this affects the ability to search 
within documents, but I don't think so.
