[OS X TeX] Illustrator cannot use partial sets of TeX fonts

The pdf output produced by pdflatex cannot be opened by Adobe  
Illustrator CS : the error messages says "missing fonts".

You can look into the pdf document, using Acrobat: it says that only  
partial sets of fonts CMMI, CMR, CMSY have been incorporated to the  

You can try to typeset the same file with \usepackage{fourier}. In  
this case, the Utopia text fonts can be faund in the system, so you  
get the same problem, but only with math fonts.

Does anybody knows a way

- either to force pdflatex to incorprate the whole font used, not a  
partial set ;

- to make system fonts out of the TeX fonts of families CMR and  
alike, and of Fourier family ?

Thanks for any help.

P.S. MacOS system fonts were the native fonts used by Textures. I  
suppose that XeLaTex could also use such MacOS system fonts. ------------------------- Info --------------------------
