I ran pdffonts to my pdf files generated from LaTeX using pdflatex
and dvips-ps2pdf.

The response generated are similar but with lot of 'no' s against 'emb'
and 'sub' column. The problem is mostly with times* fonts.
I have used usepackage{times}, but there seems to have some problem
with fonts etc.

With dvips-ps2pdf, fonts types are shown as type-1c 

How do I get rid of this(I believe this is not good).

Thanks in advance.

With regards,
