If you have Word on your computer, the Sony software will convert the file for you. You can also save the file as RTF from Word and then transfer the RTF file to your reader.

Set doc page size to 9 x 11,7 cm, pick the font you like and a font sice between 10 and 13 (depending on what you prefer). Print as pdf with the same page size. Voi la. You will keep all the formating of your doc in the pdf. The result is next to perfect. Check my link below called "Libro" for a sample. It is in Spanish but will show you the result of this procedure.

Turning it into rtf or lrf will lose format and font type. If you embed the font in the lrf you will lose page turn speed. 505 adapted pdfs are the best solution I have found, regarding to format and page turn speed. File size will be a little bigger.

If you are happy with the fonts on your reader then just load in the Word document in the usual way. (If you are using the Sony ebook library software, then click on "file" and "import file" etc.) Italics and most formatting is preserved.

Sony eBookLibrary automatically converts Docs to RTF. RTF has very limited support on the SONY so if your doc is only text your okay.

If the document has images, links you might want to convert the document to an LRF.
You can use BookCreator with calibre to convert your word docs.
BookCreator is a template with macros that can build a LRF quite easily.

I think it only has to be Microsoft Word. You don't need the whole Office Suite.
