I have generated XSL-FO documents containing TrueType fonts (mostly
PalatinoLinotype). I generated font metrics files for the fonts, and
everything seemed to be OK (they looked OK in Acrobat, and printed out OK).
That, however, was when I was printing to a PCL printer. When I print to a
Postscript printer, the results are dreadful. Every time there is a change
of font (for example, a bolded word in a line), the output gets scrambled,
wih spurious characters inserted where the bold text should be. This happens
whether or not I switch on the "download TrueType fonts" option in Acrobat.

Does anybody have any experience with this, or know of any fix?

Best regards
