Switching the printer option back to either the Hp or Canon again displays the proper Dingbat character.
>You don't say whether you're working on Mac or PC, so I assume it's PC. Whatever, you can get odd things happening when you combine TT and Type 1 fonts in the same document. The manifestation of this that I've seen (on Mac, Frame 6, Acrobat 5) is non-alpha characters such as apostrophes not printing or distilling in the TT font. Making all the fonts in the document Type 1 cured the problem.

We know of absolutely NO problems whatsoever caused by mixing
of Type 1, TrueType, and/or OpenType fonts in the same document,
same page, same paragraph, or even same word as long as no two
fonts have exactly the same name.
