I've re-instated AdobeStd and AdobePiStd.

In my message I also mentioned that I removed the AdobeFnt07.lst file.
It seems that this is generated by Acrobat Distiller rather than
FrameMaker. Apologies to anyone who has been fruitlessly searching for
this file.

The AdobePiStd font is a substitution font for ITC Zapf Dingbats used by
the PDF Library and by Acrobat when PDF files call for ITC Zapf Dingbats
but do not have it installed. In the case of FrameMaker, it may be
necessary when PDF files are imported into FrameMaker. 

It should NOT be removed as part of any expedient for faster FrameMaker
