This is because the Windows system only sees four fonts as members of a "family" (usually roman, italic, bold, bold italic; note how Arial Narrow is a different "family" than Arial). Adobe Type 1 typefaces with numerous fonts are usually set up as different families on the pc, whereas on the mac they appear as one family (i.e. Helvetica). If you have been converting fonts using a software set them up as members of different "families" and they might work better together.

Word doesn't do embedding in pdfs, Acrobat does that.

The reason your client doesn't have Myriad is because this is an MM font that comes with the Acrobat package and is used to emulate the display of missing fonts.

>>Possibly, Word can only embed a limited number of fonts of any one kind and is fazed by subtleties such as text and subheading fonts ...>>

Not true at all, most likely has to do with font permissions.
