Times New Roman in Acrobat

Although I've embedded every version of TNR available on my machine in Acrobat-Pro9, it's clear that that PDF representation of TNR 10pt lacks the same solidity/density that it has in MSWord. Tildes, for instance, appear broken, losing the delicate curve. Suggestions?

As far as I know, Adobe apps have their own type rendering engine.

Are you sure that the various versions of TNR actually got embedded in the PDFs? I ask because TNR is one of the 14 base fonts that by default does not get embedded.

For the ones who wonder:

(don't know how much it's up to date)

Anyway, dyadiddy, could you post a comparison?

Thank you both for your responses. Strangely, the problem seems to have fixed itself (almost). That is, if I go directly from MSWord using the Acrobat tab, the resulting PDF is much better looking than if I start with Acrobat and OpenFile. The tilde is still doesn't seem completely solid, but close enough. And yes, I did check the properties of the document, and it does contain the different forms of TNR. Thanks again.
