Here is a little more grist for the mill:



My FM book uses Arial fonts for headings and Tahoma elsewhere. Tahoma
may not be the prettiest font in the world, but when I started this
project early in 2008, I needed a font with Cyrillic glyphs. The company
wanted me to use Frutiger in line with the Marketing dept., but Frutiger
does not support Cyrillic.



A few minutes ago, I changed the body text font in one of the book
chapters from Tahoma to Calibri (MS default for Office 2007 and later).
Lo and behold - "Save As PDF ..." worked - no square boxes. BTW, I have
all fonts loaded into the PDF (default for high quality).



Now we take a peek into the MS Win \Windows\Fonts directory:



Win XP: Tahoma*.ttf V3.15 OpenType, TrueType Outlines OK

Win 7: Tahoma*.ttf V5.06 OpenType, TrueType Outlines not OK



(As a matter of interest:



Win XP: Calibri*.ttf V1.02 OK

Win 7: Calibri*.ttf V5.62 OK)



Just for the fun of it, I installed the XP Tahoma fonts on 7 in place of
the 7 font. I got squares again.



What's the difference between XP and 7 Tahoma vis a vis Distiller?



We're getting closer ...
