You should attach the pdf file.
Created attachment 23367 [details]
a pdf file for debugging
The xpdf error: This document uses Type 3 fonts - some text may not be correctly
And xpdf-0.92 README says:
Type 3 fonts are still not well supported by xpdf.
So this is the known bug and limitation of xpdf.
This defect considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax gold-release.
According to the development staff, it's a known limitation of the program and
not a regression. Therefore, the MUST-FIX tag is being removed.
Knocking this down in priority and severity.
it's fixed in xpdf-1.01-2.
