Documentation troublesome in Acrobat Reader 3 - Win/Mac
When printing the Users Guide from Acrobat Reader 3, some of the standard Roman characters and punctuation may print with the wrong font (such as Times New Roman or Courier New). In some cases the TaiHeritage-Bold font will also print erroneous characters. Using Acrobat Reader 4 will avoid this problem.
The Postscript names used within the font do not conform to Adobe’s guidelines and could cause problems with some applications. We will consider changing them if there is enough need from users.
