[OS X TeX] pdf font coding problems

I am not using Latin Modern (i.e. I don't think I am - my preamble  
does not contain anything unusual). I don't think the problem is  
illustrator because when I typeset a file that imports (via  
\includegraphics) an old pdf graphic (it was edited in CS2 to include  
latex fonts) I now get substituted fonts. The exact same files (latex  
source + pdf graphic) used to produce a latex output with no font  
substitutions. So I think it's something in the tex installation...

BTW, the whole process of including fonts in CS2 was quite unusual:  
the fonts in the CS2 file appeared substituted in every application I  
tried (CS2, preview, texshop) but miraculously reappeared as computer  
modern in the pdf output after typesetting the source file...
