do you have the Y&Y fonts bought and installed correctly? In one of 
your previous eMails you wrote that in AI you see them substituted -- 
which can mean that pdftex does not find them. What is your log file 
looking like?

Do have (the X11 application) xpdf installed? With this programme 
useful (command line) utilities come too: pdffonts and pdfinfo. 
pdffonts can reveal easily which fonts are actually included in the PDF 

And there is a last source of errors: pdftex and dvips and dvipdfm(x) 
know two ways to create their PS or PDF output -- "downloading" the 
fonts or not. "Downloading" means that they are included, usually only 
partially i.e. only those glyphs used in the document, in the output 
file together with their encoding files. In the other case, for example 
for the case of the usual set of 35 PostScript fonts, only the 
encodings are "downloaded" and the viewer application has to fetch the 
fonts from its own or the system's resources. What is the output of 
'updmap --listmaps'?

I never used AI, but it's really had to have an idea why it should make 
a difference between Computer Modern and other PostScript fonts. Or are 
you using the CMR bitmap fonts? updmap and the pdftex run's log file 
should reveal these details ...
