I know you don't want any other suggestions, but for the sake of others on 
the list, I would change one or more of the fonts in my FrameMaker documents 
and distill them again.

Hello Framers,
This might be slightly OT but here is the issue. I'm PDFing my Frame files 
with Distiller 6.0. Now and then my publisher comes up with font issues - 
certain fonts come out wrongly like bold comes out as bold ital or small 
caps comes out as bold small caps, etc. Tracing it back I narrowed it down 
to fonts having identical XUIDs. Now, I can of course go ahead and remove 
IDs on all fonts but this would be a tedious task - I have over 5000 fonts 
library plus this doesn't seem to be the right solution as in couple 
instances it didn't help either.
My publisher is using Docuprint machines and doesn't have much options of 
changing fonts there.
I'm trying PDF995 now and it seems like I have more control over the PDF 
process with a postscript language. I don't know much of Ghostscript at 
all - it was barely enough to change the compression method for the images, 
however it should be possible to remove XUIDs at PDFing step but how? I 
found a piece of a script that does something with XUIDs but this didn't 
seem to work at all - the PDF just wouldn't get created.

The file I'm editing is called gs_pdfwr.ps - it's part of the pdf995 

Please HELP.


P.S. I tried a lot of things in the attempt to solve it to no avail. Please 
do not suggest any other handling - I tried them all (sad but true...). I 
only would like to know how to remove XUID when my file gets created.
