It seems that Acrobat Reader 5 objects only to some of the
characters in cmr10.pfb; specifically, characters
13, 14, 15, 25, 26, 30, 36, 37, 51, 52, 53, 54, 62, 63,
66, 71, 82, 83, 97, 98, 100, 103, 105, 106, 109, 110, 112,
113, 114, and 115. For all of these I got the "an error
occurred while downloading a font, the file may not
print correctly" message (on a document with just the
one character). Other characters were OK.
Putting << in the map file didn't actually solve the problem,
because the characters listed above were still substituted
by characters from Courier at printing. In particular,
ligatures that Courier doesn't have were missing.
I tried using cmr10.ttf instead of cmr10.pfb. Sometimes
I still get the same error, sometimes I don't.
