    I just created and emaild someone a PDF file that I made. Th fonts in the
    PDF document display correctly on my computer (where the fonts are
    installed), but on my friends computer the 'specialty fonts' are replaced by
    generic san-serif fonts (he does not have the fonts installed).

    I thought the whole idea of a PDF was to be able to supply a document and
    have others see it exactly as it was created even if they do not have the
    fonts. I was also under the impression that Acrobat creator imbeds the fonts
    in the document to eliminate this problem.

    Any way around the substitution problem?

    Your PDF creator software will have settings for which fonts to embed and
    which to substitute. Check the manual/help file.
