Error: FONT_X is not embedded

There is no remedy for this error if you are using LaTeX given by PDF eXpress. First of all, since you can only submit a pdf file 3 times to check if it is compliant under a given title, you can check which fonts are embedded in a pdf file using:

pdffonts <file_name>.pdf

Here is the sequence of commands that I used that embedded the fonts for me:

latex file.tex
bibtex file
latex file.tex
latex file.tex
dvips -Ppdf -G0 -tletter file.dvi
ps2pdf -dCompatibilityLevel=1.4 -dPDFSETTINGS=/prepress file.pdf

Thanks to Nabeel's blog for posting these.
