In which respect? An annotated little photograph would explain better.

My recommendation: use the standard PostScript fonts Times,  
Helvetica, and Courier (i.e. \usepackage 
{times,helvet,courier,mathptmx} in LaTeX or \setromanfont{Times  
Roman}, \setsansfont{Helvetica}, \setmonofont{Courier} in XeLaTeX).  
They don't need to be included into the PDF file (and also Symbol and  
Zapf-Dingbats), so the output file size is small. If file size is not  
important, then experiment with the fonts Apple supplies with Mac OS  
X (or from where your self-made PDF files may come) and determine the  
"best one" for all future use.
