I tried it with a test file that uses Times, Helvetica, and Courier.  
The output from Apple's pstopdf on Mac OS X 10.4.11 did not include  
any of these fonts – correct behaviour! So, in other words, the  
"Apple Distiller" does  not include fonts when not needed on Tiger.



Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to  
build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying  
to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
