For a while I have had a problem with bullets appearing as the Yen symbol and quotes not appearing at all, in PDF files generated by FrameMaker when using Arial and Times New Roman fonts. Going by the posts to the adobe.framemaker newsgroup, others have also, but there has been no definitive cause and the suggested workarounds weren't necessarily practical.
The short story is that I found I could fix the problem by moving the following fonts out of the "/System Folder/Fonts" directory.

I am not sure which application put them there, possibly the ATM software, but the Arial and Times New Roman versions of these files seemed to get used in preference to the defaults for these fonts. The problem is these extra versions stuff up the PDF file rendering.
Does anyone know more about the origin of these font files? I know they got put there later as I was the owner and not "root:wheel" like the other fonts.
