Yes, part of it is because the designer didn't realize thta she should incorporate the fonts when they're not standard ones, but I don't think she knows how best to create files for the web. The downloadable newsltetter weighs 600k+!
My understanding is that you can "embed" fonts in Acrobat regardless of platform.
Yes, but incorporated fonts weigh down the file, and since this is supposed to be downloadable, I don't think it's a good idea - this file uses about 8 different fonts! I'm thinking that regardless of the platform, it's probably better to use "standard" fonts such as arial or whatever the mac equivalent is. Can anyone help with this question?
the deigner may get better results by turning the fonts into paths
That would definitely be a good idea if the goal is to be sure the file looks the same everywhere; on the other hand, the file size will go wwaaaaay up!
