I have adobe acrobat 7.0 pro. When i view most of the pdfs, if I try to zoom-in/out or scroll-down, the font for the entire dcoument changes from the normal font to this:

The change occurs at the redrawing place, that is, at the bottom or at the top while the unredrawn place remains normal. If I scroll down/up to cover and then uncover the normal place, it wud've change too. This is not happenning with some pdfs though, however fast i try to scroll or zoom in/out.
This is a fresh install and no option was changed. OS is Xp pro. I tried printing the document to paper but the font remains unintelligible.
I don't know what distiller does, but when I saved my pdf as ps and opened the same in distiller, it said Helvetica, helvetica-bold, etc were not found.

Why eBooks and mobile devices don't (yet) pose an existential threat to the PDF

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.
