This is my first posting to this list. I've looked through the archives to see
if I could find anything relating to our problem, but had no luck. I'm hoping
someone out there will read this and at least point me in the right
direction...We've got a PDF problem that's driving us crazy. We've spent some
time PDFing a few years worth of newsletters originally created on Interleaf.
The PDF file is intended for use on the WEB. We've made sure that we clicked the
"embed all fonts" option when we PDFd the files, but distiller does not seem to
be recognizing ITC Souvenir. We created the PDFs from PS files. Our problem now
is that when we try to search by word on the web, the only searchable text in
our newsletter PDFs is the Helvetica text in the callouts. What are we doing
