I don't have the code with me so can't check now. But if the issue is 
with Times related text, then FreeFont-ttf.zip should have nothing to do 
with the issue you are experiencing. From memory, the FreeFont font is 
used for the Unicode text only.

I'll take a look on my return in a week's time (if Michael doesn't beat 
me to it). I'll retest with the latest Adobe Reader - clearly it is more 
strict than older Adobe Reader versions.

If anybody knows of a online PDF validator (not a PDF Achive format 
validator), that would help a huge amount.
