Conf: (P-PDF) What's Wrong with my PDF?, Msg: 147917

I have 30 pages of a PDF that I've placed in InDesign CS2 (Mac OS
10.3.9). When I export the InDesign doc to PDF, fonts are either missing
or have serious kerning issues in the "placed" PDF portion, though only
on some pages. I checked the source PDF and all fonts are embedded
subsets.

I've tried not subsetting fonts when exporting from InDesign, I've tried
printing to PostScript and Distilling manually, but still get the same result.
I've tried viewing in Acrobat 5 and 7 on both Mac and PC with the same
results, though sometimes the issue disappears when I close and open
the document.

Other than converting all 30 pages to TIFFs, are there any other fixes or
workarounds?

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

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. 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.
