The easiest way, I find, is to use the LY1 encoding (support files from
yandy.com) and pslatex, so that the standard (Times, Helvetica, Courier)
fonts are used with the standard (Adobe) encoding.
This results not only in nicer-looking PDF files, but much smaller ones,
since the fonts don't have to be embedded.
