If you exported both the book and chapter files to MIF, and neither
contains the string for the supposedly missing font ... I'd call Adobe
I keep the default printer set to Adobe PDF to avoid having to deal
with those messages.

I was able to sufficiently redesign the table formats in one file so that I can open it up without getting the message. Then I imported the fixed table formats into another file. Didn't work. I have scoured the hell out of that second file, and cannot find any of the missing fonts in table defs, master or reference pages, paragraph or character format definitions, or anywhere. I still get the missing fonts message.
