Acrobat Reader shows that the following fonts are *not* embedded: Norasi 
Bolditalic and FreeSansBold. Since you cannot expect these fonts to be 
available on a standard Windows system, AR will replace them with one of its 
default PostScript fonts or their OTF equivalents. Please make sure to click 
on "Embed All" in the "Font" tab of the PDF export dialog before you export 
to PDF.
