Sorry for the partial mail... my 2 year old daughter got loose on the  
keyboard :)

So, this is was I've done so far. Managed to locate the relevant fonts on  
my computer. Installed these in the computer running Corel Draw. Corel  
doesn't complain about missing fonts anymore. Malayalam is perfect. Hindi  
doesn't show up at all. English text seem to run into each other,  
especially where there are ligatures.

Tried ps2pdf14 -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress -dEmbedAllFonts=true $1.ps. Did not  

As to setting 8 pages on a page, I am not sure in what order to put it. In  
any case, the printing press guys insist on importing everything into  
Corel. Which would mean I'd be back to square one.

As for pdfpackage, searching in google gives me results for "pdf package".  
Couldn't find the program. Duvvuri, if you could send me a link, it would  
be very helpful.

I am at a loss. Alternatively, is there any method to install/use times new  
roman and arial in LaTeX? I did google for this and got this page (
http://www.radamir.com/tex/ttf-tex.htm ), but unfortunately, it talks about  
miktex on windows (I'm using linux: there are a couple of steps that seem  
too windows specific).

By the way, I do not think the problem is isolated to the use of corel  
draw. Got similar problems trying to import the pdf into inkscape and adobe  

Thanks for all the reponses so far, friends. But, unfortunately, I'm still  
in trouble.
