The results look just fine on my computer (windows XP), but I sent the files to a friend with a Mac, and none of my mathematica fonts/symbols seemed to embed properly in the PDF.  I have tried playing with the Ghostscript device options, including the "embedAllFonts", which seems to make the file larger (so I know that it is doing something), but it still doesn't format properly on her computer. Any suggestions?

I have used PrimoPDF, which is available free from www.primopdf.com - 
and which was recommended by someone else in an earlier post. Here is a
