Good point about embedding fonts. However, I am in the habit of sending a
PDF version of my Word file to anyone who wants electronic copy. To get the
fonts embedded correctly I do it in two steps (1) MS Word -> PS file (i.e.
print to file using Postscript driver) (2) PS file -> PDF file (using Adobe
Distiller). I never found a way of printing directly from MS Word to PDF
that dealt with fonts correctly. Do you have a way of doing this?
