Last year I did a job for a client (on my Mac) and then sent the draft in
PDF to them where they printed it from a PC.  The ligatures came out
looking a little off-sized, and their proofreader circled everyone for
pages and pages before giving up and writing a note.  I got quite a chuckle
from this.  And it didn't matter because the camera copy was printed from
my machine.

I'd agree.  Frame documents on a PC just don't look very good compared to
the Mac.  My main client shop just did a wholesale conversion from Mac to
PC and even on 20 inch monitors the documents look bad compred to what they
look like on the Mac.
