    I recently upgraded versions of XEP to version 3.7.1 (from version 3.13)
    and have started to get complaints from our printers that although the
    PDFs we're supplying pass a Pitstop preflight, they are failing on press
    (quite dramatically!) because of font subsetting. When I use the
    preflight associated with Acrobat 6.0, the fonts are indeed all
    subsetted, although I've set the appropriate attribute in the fonts.xml
    We're using Type 1 fonts (TrueType fonts have had other spectacular
    failures) and need to deliver them fully embedded. Below is an example
    of what we have in the fonts.xml file.
    <font name="AgfaRotisSerif" afm="D:\fonts\RotisSerifT1\AT641___.AFM"
    pfb="D:\fonts\RotisSerifT1\AT641___.PFB" embed="true" subset="false">
              <alias name="Rotis Serif"/>
              <alias name="RotisSerif"/>
    Do you have any suggestions on what I can do about this?
