Topic: Font substitution from JetForm

I'm running JetForm Design 5.2.8 (a.k.a. Accelio Classic Design) and Distiller 4.05 on Windows NT 4.0 SP6.
The only reason I'm using Distiller is that I need its security features, which are unavailable when generating a pdf file directly from Central Pro.
My form design uses Accelio's PostScript fonts for Arial and Times New Roman, and I embed them at compile time. However, when I pass the resulting merged PostScript file to Distiller, it complains that it can't find those fonts, and substitutes Courier, resulting in unacceptable changes in the appearance of the pdf output. (All printing is to an HP LaserJet PCL printer.)
I then changed the PostScript file to use Helvetica and Times, with the result that the pdf file appears much closer to the original, except that it starts 1 cm lower on the page, ends 5mm higher at the bottom of the page, and is shifted to the left 5mm compared to the Accelio Central Pro output.
The shift to the left is fatal, pushing the vertical line at the left edge of the form into the HP LaserJet non-printable zone.
Does anyone have any experience with JetForm and Distiller?
