You can color the anchor text for the hyperlinks in FrameMaker, and, if spot
color as black and white is turned off in the FM print dialog, and color is
turned on in the distiller PPD, the color will appear in the PDF.

If you're not using Acrobat 4.0, you must not use TrueType fonts. If you use
only Postscript fonts, Acrobat Reader has a word search capability, or you
can use Acrobat Cataloguer to conduct more sophisticated searches.

If you have Acrobat 4.0, you can make the page numbers in the PDF match the
page numbers in the original FrameMaker document.

No. PDF is better, IMHOP.
