Sexing Up My Thesis

Fact: I am no graphic designer.

But I do try! Several individuals have indicated that they would prefer a "sexier" version of my thesis that is prettily formatted. I agree that presentation counts. So, I am trying to oblige to the degree that my skills allow. A few self-publishing snafus that I've run into:

1. Cover Art: I can make a pretty cover using PowerPoint. That is about the extent of my software access. So, if you would like to participate in the "design a cover" contest - do jump in!

2. Hyperlinks: Is there a way to keep hyperlinks live when one PDFs a document? My thesis is full of link love in MS Word format, but I know a PDF document would be more accessible to folks. Losing links might be a trade off, but I just thought I would ask about this dilemma.

Thanks!
