I am using Scribus on WinXP SP2.  I generated a wedding invitation 
using a TrueType font which looks fine from within Scribus, and in a PNG 
image export, however the exported PDF file shows a completely garbled 
screen as viewed in Acrobat 7. I am not an expert user and if there are 
specific export settings needed, I probably didn't set them. I am using a 
TrueType font, is this a known issue?  Acrobat reports the following about 
fonts in the document:

EdwardianScriptITC  (Embedded)
Type: TrueType
Encoding: Custom

Here is a screenshot showing the (good) PNG and (bad) PDF side by side:
