PDF stands for Portable Document Format and it's a way to display a document that is in a standard format and is easy to post and send, but not easy to change. If you want to create your own PDF files Apple makes it very easy. After you are done working with a file in Microsoft Word or Pages, or virtually any application that allows you to print, you can create a PDF by going to the print menu (yep, print). When the print dialog box comes up look on the bottom left and you'll see a PDF drop down box (see image below). Choose "Save as PDF..." and then choose where you want to save it (Desktop, Documents, iPhoto, Mail) and there you have it. Your own PDF document for posting to your website, sending in an email, or using it however you want.
