Question: Well, really the title of the question says it all. There are similar questions on SO already. But here's some differences... I absolutely cannot use Office on the server. I must be able to convert the document programmatically. I don't really care how much it costs. Obviously cheaper is better, but if you have a good suggestion that happens to be pricey, please feel free to include it. I hope that I can find a solution on VeryPDF?
I accepted the OpenOffice.org answer because it seemed like the most intriguing. However, I really am curious what other people think. Keep posting answers and voting and I'll accept whichever has the most votes.
