Thanks very much, unfortunately our PI only has Acrobat 3 and
sent us the files in both PS and PDF format over email (and to
think that only two years ago I couldn't even talk like this).
Seriously we may try to persuade all PIs to get '4.  Most FL
proposals go out without a hitch, but this missing letter problem is
a gigantic pain when it happens.  Anne W.

Anne,

We had this problem yesterday! It was a problem with embedded fonts. Our PI
successfully solved the problem by following the Fastlane instructions for
"Downloading the Windows Acrobat Distiller 4.0 'Fastlane' Profile." I've
attached the link here.
