Default Over-obliquing in Acrobat

I had this problem a couple of years ago at a different company. Now it's happening again, and I'm annoyed. Time to open up a can of whoopfont.

There are situations where when I print to PDF, certain "italicized" boldface fonts always come out slanted too much. Does this ring any bells?

Before I start chasing myself around the barn, I'm asking here. My current guess (noting what's in common between this company and the last) is that the problem occurs when the roman as a true italic font and the bold doesn't. (When I slant the bold, it looks right on the screen but comes out looking double-slanted.)

The problem may be limited to MS applications. (In both cases I printed to PDF from MS applications (Word and Publisher).) We'll be acquiring CS but we don't have it yet.

Yes, I know I shouldn't be using MS apps. Believe me I know. GD their GD GDI, is all I can say.
