And if you produce a ps from Preview, and then open that file (again)  
in preview, it will be converted back to pdf. Does _that_ pdf still  
cause trouble?

OK. Does the info in Adobe Reader (it used to be the little triangle  
at the top-right of the window, don't know where they left it now)  
tell you anything about fonts?

<grin> I was joking, at least a bit (I really don't like the new  
reader, for reaasons I won't go into here).

Have you confirmed that the Windows version has het same problem?  
Does Acrobat 7 have the same problem (on any platform)? What type of  
printer, postscript, or otherwise? Is it possible to create a small  
pdf that exhibits the problem and share it with us?
