Thank you Sandra,

That is a very useful bit of information. All the fonts I use are Adobe
Type1 and they distill and embed just fine. For biblical languages I use the
Linguists Software Greek and Hebrew and the fonts that come with Accordance.
Have not run into the problem you mentioned.

Thank you for making me aware of this problem.
