so the problem is converting a document to the smaller pdf possiblme.
I can't see a problem there.

If some PDF documents created from the same source are relevant bigger
than others, the only reason for this can be embedded data, like fonts
or images.

In LO you can change if and how much images should be compressed an in
which resolution they are saved.

Playing with this should result in small and good enough quality PDFs!

I forgot to ask: Which version of PDF? 1.2, 1.3 or 1.4?

You can run the Linux tool 'pdffonts' on the two different files, one
produced with MS-Word and one produced with OOo/LOo.

Pdffonts will tell you which fonts are used and which are embedded in
the file

I know that the PDF is supposed to be 'optimal', but there are many
ways of rearranging the sections and internal pointers which will alter
the way its displayed (e.g.sequence) and there are tools that can
"optimise" this. I've not experimented to see if they make a
significant difference to file size.
