As per usual this list has saved the day! Many thanks to Tracy Boyington, Carl Bergerson, Beth Friedman, Dave Jirsa-Silverman, Rasil Ahuja, and Terence Kierans for their suggestions on solving my PDF font problem.
Here's what I ended up doing:
* In Acrobat Distiller I set Distiller > Job Options> Font Embedding > Embed All Fonts.
*In Exchange I set File > Print Setup > Print Quality > Text Mode=True Type as Bitmaps.
Oh, my manual looks sooooo good now! Thanks a million.
