It occurs to me that if Christine is getting the unavailable fonts
message only when she's attempting to create a PDF, the
font problem may not be in the text of the document because 
if it were she'd be getting the unavailable fonts message when
she *opens* the file.  My guess is that the offending font might 
be in a graphic rather than anywhere in any of FrameMaker's
content or stored formats.

Another possibility might relate to the use of "Save As PDF".
The Times font might be available on her default printer but 
not on the Adobe PDF printer. When you use Save As PDF,
FrameMaker 7.x invisibly changes the printer from the default 
printer to the Adobe PDF printer driver, and most of the usual
warnings you get when switching printers are suppressed. It
might be useful to try saving the document to a PostScript
file (using the Adobe PDF driver, of course) and then distilling
it to PDF.

My opinions only; I don't speak for Intel.

It's probably a carry over from an older set of tags or imported text
from another file.

If you're sure it's not affecting any tags, just turn off Remember
Missing Font Names
in Preferences, open the file and save again. That should clear it.
Occasionally, you'll
need to safe as a MIF, open that as a text file, and
search-and-replace, but that's
normally not needed.
