Generating PS for Docutech 135 from Frame

driver/Docutech135 ppd. Docs are highly graphical operating manuals: b/w,
all TrueType fonts (I'm working on that with "les grandes fromages" at my

Hmmm.  I have set the TT fonts to download as outlines.
When I distill the file to PDF to have a look, it's ugly: missing characters

PPD, I send the TT fonts as Type 42, the resulting PS file is bigger (which

distilled to PDF.

a Docutech?

I know I must be missing something here!

Thanks for any help/commiseration/hacks anyone can send my way....
