Hi Robert,

Thanks so much for your quick reply.  I changed optimize-resources
from false to true, and while Distiller no longer complains about
Times and Courier, it is complaining about Helvetica.  Checking the
.ps file, I see Times and Courier are no longer referenced, but
Helvetica is.  It's not explicitly identified in my .fo file, and I
didn't intend for Helvetica to be there; I wonder if it's lurking
because of some block that lacks an explicit font-family?

If it helps, I've uploaded the resulting .ps file to:
