I need to put a pdf-format newsletter on a website for downloading. The designer of the newsletter just sent it to me and it's:
1. made on a mac
2. made from an illustrator file but it's two pages
3. uses some "exotic" fonts that I don't have (maybe just because I'm on a pc

What's the best strategy here?
For one thing, shouldn't they use "standard" fonts?

importing bitmap images into Indesign

In my experience, InDesign displays images by dimensions, not by resolution... and it will import most common file types, AFAIK. (I've used GIF, JPG, TIF and PNG with InDesign without a problem.)

For instance, if I create a nice 300ppi 2in X 1in logo icon, and paste it into an InDesign document, it will appear at 2in x 1in.

If I take a 72ppi 2in x 1in image and paste it in, it will appear the same size... but will have low-resolution jaggies.

I never understood why other "paper layout" software like MSWord or Apple Works will display inserted images at a fixed resolution... so the high res gfx. suddenly appear 10x the size they're supposed to be, and then need to be scaled down.

And InDesign will export to PDF exactly what you see in the InDesign layout screen (minus the rulers and guidelines ;) ).
