Hi Linda,

For some reason, the OpenType fonts bundled with FrameMaker 8,  
including Adobe Garamond Pro, reside in

C:\Program Files\Adobe\FrameMaker8\fminit\fonts\adobe\

which, in addition to making them not available to non-Adobe programs  
such as Office, also means that Distiller can't find them.
To fix this, go to Distiller > Settings > Font Location, and add the  
above font location.

That's what I had to do to get the bundled Minion Pro and Myriad Pro  
to embed.
