Nothing? I've waited patiently for ten days here and have tried every workaroud/troubleshooting experiment I can think of and I still have not found a solution to this problem. None of the other forum posts have a solution, that I can find. It's a BIG problem!
I tried saving the file as an IDML and starting over. Still had the font problem. I tried starting a brand new document and imported all my styles from the doc that does export just fine with this font — still had the font problem. I tried reexporting to PDF from my original "good" document again to make sure — and the font issue does NOT appear. Don't know what's different about this doc than all the other tests I've tried.
So I tried importing all of my text from Word, thinking it may have something to do with cutting and pasting — sometimes had the font problems and sometimes not, in the same document.
So then I tried saving my Word doc as plan text, cutting and pasting into a new document and just changes a few lines to my font — had the font problem.
But I can still go back to my original document and it export just fine. Aaargh. Is it somehow possible that the font has been corrupted (a suggestion I saw when Googling this problem) but somehow it's NOT corrupted in the one doc that's performing as expected? Do the fonts get embedded somehow so that it's not spoiled in one doc, but spoiled everywhere else? And how to explain that it will sometimes screw up and sometimes not — from page to page in the same doc?
I am now in something very close to a panic. Can someone at ADOBE help me?

Go to your Indesign file. Using the selection tool (V) select the block of text that is not embedding properly. Go to the Type, drop down to Create Outlines. This will convert the text to outlines. Export the PDF.
This will make the Indesign text NOT able to be edited as its now a shape. So, either save as a different file name. Or, undo the last step.
