Hi. I am not a techie but the same problem happened to me and was solved but specifying a path for the font in file:preferences (with all documents closed). I believe the PS font also needs to be installed properly:
How To Install PostScript Type 1 Fonts in Windows 2000 or Windows XP
From Jacci Howard Bear,
Your Guide to Desktop Publishing.
Stay up to date!
Windows 2000 and XP have built-in support for PostScript Type 1 fonts so the use of Adobe Type Manager (ATM) is not required. The procedure to install PostScript fonts is simple, but make a note of the tips, below.
Time Required: NA
1. Click Start | Settings | Control Panel.
2. Double-click on the Fonts folder.
3. Choose File | Install New Font.
4. In the Folders menu, navigate to the folder containing the fonts that you wish to install. A list of available fonts will appear in the List of Fonts window.
5. Click on the font you wish to install or use the "Select All" button to install all fonts in the List of Fonts.
6. Click on OK.
1. If you are installing fonts from a CD be sure the 'Add without copying files' box is NOT checked; unless the fonts are on a located somewhere (such as a network) which you will have access to at all times.
2. Windows Type 1 fonts have two files: PFB (printer font binary has outlines that control how the font looks) and PFM (printer font metrics has information about font spacing). Be sure you have both font files.
3. If you currently have or previously had Adobe Type Manager Deluxe 4.0, 4.1, or 4.1.1 installed you may need the Adobe Deluxe Updater in order to properly use your Type 1 fonts under Windows 2000/XP. Get it from Adobe.
(from jaccie something on the web)... a common mistake is to install them through copy paste into c: fonts
