	A possible work-around might be to cut-n-paste the file into
Word or Wordperfect (whatever WP you use).

	IF they transfer across OK, then print to Distiller from there.

	IF they DON'T transfer across, you may need to ADD some fonts to
your installed base. Wordperfect has lots of additional fonts available
to install. I don'T know about Word???
