I was about to raise the point ;-)

Actually the underlying problem is that psdot-calls, except those with "dotstyle=+", lead to non embedded fonts in the pdf-file of my thesis.
My printer, that is the company that will print my thesis in book-form, 
only accepts embedded fonts.
Is it possible to make psdot-calls produce embedded fonts ?
