I've been trying to print my Mathematica notebooks as PDF's, but I've been running into a problem.  I use the Ghostscript PDF device set up as a redirected printer port.  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?
