Earlier this spring I queried this group about how to embed all fonts 
in the PDF file; it's necessary for electronic submission of a paper.

I got many fairly arcane replies...I'm not at all a TeX wizard so they 
weren't much help.

What I finally did was to convert all my PDF figures to EPS, run LaTeX 
from the command line to generate a .dvi file, run "dvips -P pdf" to 
generate a PS file (suggested by Omnipress, the publisher of the 
conference proceedings), then ship that off to Adobe's "online PDF 
generation" website for the final PDF.

Surely there's got to be an easier way!  By the way, the "simple" 
suggestions (like print the PDF to a file) didn't include all the 

Thanks for any suggestions.
