AFAICT OpenOffice doesn't give you the option to embed the fonts when exporting to pdf. But what's weird is that I'm creating the pdf and then viewing on the same system, so it can't be a problem of not having the font available on the system.

OpenOffice has always done an adequate job of exporting to pdf's, including showing fonts that aren't on the viewing system. It seems to be just this one proprietary font... (which isn't supposed to be embedded at all, according to the licensing agreement).

I do the covers on Scribus, where I can control the embedding or outlining of fonts, but come to think of it, I don't have any accented characters in MatrixScript on any of the covers I've done so far.

I'd like to avoid having to produce the bulletin pages in Scribus if I can. Since we have the interior pages "printed" at the local copy shop, it seems a bit OTT, but maybe I should play around a bit with Scribus once this current issue is done.
