Default ID transparency problem?

I'm battling with InDesign, as are a number of my clients. The main problem that I encounter is with text wrapping round images with drop shadows: the letters closest to the image print heavier than the rest of the text because (I think) ID is converting them to outlines both when it prints to a PS printer or when it exports as a PDF. If I convert all the text to outlines then print or export to PDF, the text looks OK.

The big trouble for us is that our customers don't want to pay for a matchprint if they supply PDFs, so the problem doesn't show up until, er, they get the final print!

I've uploaded a couple of files in Robin's ID Test.zip: one is ID CS2, the other is a Press PDF of it. Although the problem isn't visible on screen, you certainly can see it on a printout. If you have a spare mo and have ID CS2 would you mind letting me know if you can reproduce both the problem and the fix please? Oh, and do let me know if there's a better way!

Many thanks
Robin Springall
