[gs-devel] powerpoint 2007 and pstopdf - text rendering issues

I'm using the Powerpoint print-to-file feature to save a slideshow as a
postscript file. Then I use ps2pdf to convert it to pdf. However, the
resulting pdf seems to have invalid character information. The text looks
ok, but if I copy text from the pdf, and paste it somewhere else, the
characters are completely invalid. The powerpoint file uses standard Windows
fonts (Calibri, etc..).
My guess is that it's a font embedding issue with the postscript. I've tried
many different command line switches for ps2pdf as suggested by Google
searches, but so far nothing seems to fix the problems.
Anyone have an idea of what the problem is?
