Topic: Can't use ColumbusBoldItalic in pdf?

Greetings-I'm stumped! I'm creating a pdf from a Quark doc but two particular italic typefaces are always replaced with Courier. All other italic typefaces in other font families pdf just fine. The font is ColumbusMT Italic and BoldItalic.
I've used Font Doctor to check the font and FontAgent Pro accepts it(doesn't toss it out as corrupt). Yet it won't show up on the pdf. If I use the same font in Word & print to pdf, the font embeds and appears without a hitch.

My system is OS X 10.2.8, using Quark 5 in Classic mode, Acrobat Distiller 5.
Any ideas will be welcome. Thanks

For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
