    It's called Acrobat (PDF).  But you need a PDF writer or program that can print to PDFs.  BUT, problem is, if anyone has Adobe Acrobat, they will have limited editing capabilities.  Linux has some free PDF writers.  Windows doesn't seem to, though there are some that will work for free AND put an advertisement for themselves at the end of the page.

    That's what I said.

    Otherwise, no way I know of to do this.  You could try putting watermarks on your documents.  Or create a PDF with the text as a graphic (people can't edit graphics in PDFs, only text, as far as I've seen).
