(I know its redundant but for completeness)
To complete the original circle, re-opened Duncan's pdf while only having
the two type1 fonts (d050000l.pfb d050000l.afm) in the Tw fonts folder, and
as hoped it opens fins with circles showing and text and numbers
So everyone's suggestions worked out.
Are any of the other fonts in the fonts folder going to be needed as well
Or is zapfdingbats the only one that Poppler can't find Windows supplying
some sort of stand-in for? Which organises/handles that - Poppler or Windows
