This brings up a question that I have had for some time. When TeXShop 
calls teTeX using pdflatex, how do we know what fonts pdflatex is 
embedding in the PDF file? There is no setting in TeXShop for this, 
so I don't really know what is happening. I suppose this is related 
to the question quoted above, that is, I assume that the TeX + 
Ghostscript option in TeXShop is calling ps2pdf at some point, so how 
do we know what fonts ps2pdf is embedding.

Inquiring minds want to know.
