Presumably this means to have a PDF printer driver installed (but I know 
not why).

When you refer to "strike through fonts" do you mean something like a 
double-struck font, the sort of thing you'd get by typing Esc d s R Esc, 
e.g.?  On my Windows XP system where I have the Adobe PDF driver 
installed, the result of saving as PDF a notebook having such a glyph 
displays just fine when I open it in Adobe Acrobat.
