OK.  Wasn't sure, as Adobe lists 14 fonts that don't have to be embedded
in PDFs, and considers Helvetica and Helvetica Oblique as separate fonts.

Guess I haven't had my morning caffeine yet -- by "wicked" are you
saying that specifiying by font name (Helvetica vs sans-serif) is bad?

I tried:

	(define %title-font-family%
          "sans-serif italic")

in my customization layer.  Same errors as I reported before (LaTeX
Font Warning: Font shape `TS1/<unknown>/bx/n' undefined).  I tried
altering the capitalization and spacing, in case that mattered.

If I specify by font name (Helvetica, Palatino, Times Roman, Courier,
and so forth), it works.  This is what is suggested in the DocBook DSSSL
docs.  I do need to specify a specific font (Helvetica Oblique) rather
than just a font type (sans-serif italic).

Thanks very much,
