Converting Book to PDF or HTML

If I am going to sell my books as ebooks, then I need to convert the word document into PDF and/or HTML formats.  I have no clue how to do this.  My understanding is that I can use Adobe PageMaker or Adobe InDesign.  Supposedly, I can also just use word to convert to HTML.  It won’t be easy because you can’t simply save as HTML or PDF.  There is a lot of modifying and editing which needs to be done.

So my next step in getting my book published is to learn how to use the conversion programs and slowly convert my books to both PDF and HTML.  Here is a website I found which looks promising – http://kindleformatting.com/formatting.php.

Since finding time is a major factor, this could take me several months.  I could pay someone to do it, but how do I know which website to trust?  I’d rather take the time to learn to do it myself.  I will keep you posted and let you know which program I end up using.
