Have you tried printing to pdf, using the Adobe PDF driver? I would suggest
printing to a postscript file and manually Distilling it so you can see what
is going on at stage.

I am not really up on Windows stuff but I thought you didn't have to use ATM
to install fonts anymore, least ways I haven't since NT. The Fonts Control
Panel provides an very nice interface for managing your fonts. It may be that
ATM is putting the postscript files into a directory that Distiller is unaware
> In Distiller the font locations are set to:

Well they look fairly standard :/

More than likely.

Have you Tried setting it to replace with another font? To confirm the file
will print without it?
