Yes, it has a flaw on the issn-line, and it seems the fonts are not ok, 
strange though as I asked all the font to be included and have used them 
in print before ...

well, actually my pdf looks better on my machine :-P -- in my acrobat 
reader on Kubutu, that is. What does my
look like on your machine? Greyish?? Font problems?
If it is not to difficult: Could you open it in Acrobat reader and make 
a small screenshot (or describe what you see)? Would be of help to 
understand a bit more of this mystery :P
