hi george,

to check which fonts have been embedded, open your file in adobe  
reader, choose document -> properties -> fonts, and see where it says  
something like "embed subset".

afaik pdflatex will embedded all fonts, except for possibly the 35 or  
14 basic fonts (depends on your setup). if those aren't included, you  
need to change the relevant settings in your mapfile. if you used i- 
installer, have a look at http://latex.yauh.de/faq/12_76_en.html

hope that helps.
