I am assuming that you are generating OpenType fonts from FontLab. The Windows and Mac Postscript Type 1 font formats can't represent what's in Caslon Pro.
Unfortunately, you often can't get away with inporting an OTF font into FontLab and regenerating it. FontLab imposes its own defaults, and offers a simpler interface than the set of tools which Adobe uses to generate its Pro OpenType fonts. A technically proficient designer could fix the problems in FontLab, but it is non-trivial - a day's work at least, possibly two or three for the first face. If you want to look further yourself, the problems are most likely in:
- name table: font menu names are messed up
- Unicode camp subtable: sounds liike Unicode values are no longer correct
- OS/2 code page ranges: check style linking, code page ranges.
I suggest you ask on the FontLab list for someone who can do contract work for this.

Yes, we are generating OpenType fonts for Mac. We are in way over our heads technically. We tried finding someone on the FontLab list but no bites. I've also tried to find an Adobe type designer who could help either as an Adobe project with no luck -- too small a project I'm sure, but also as a freelance project. Can you give any referals, or is that appropriate?
Thank you so much for the help.
You might try the OpenType mailing list, as well. I can think of a number of people who might be able and interested, and they're all on that list.
