This is ONLY true if you are using Type 1 fonts, not True Type. I've
been told by someone at Adobe that there is a bug in the way Frame sends
the True Type fonts to the AdobePS 4.1 print driver and the end result
is no real text in your .PDF file. If you try to click on the text, it
turns to squares and other interesting garbage. I have several .PDF
files this happened to and there's no way (that I know of) to convert
them to real text.
