[PLUG] Evince and Fonts

I'm looking at a data sheet for a transistor with Evince, and it's 
rendering Greek letters incorrectly.  Lower case mu is rendering as an 
infinity symbol, and upper case omega as a vertical line.  Fortunately 
there aren't any others in there to confuse me, at least at the moment.

Presumably this is because the font used isn't stored in the pdf, and 
whatever is default on Ubuntu 10.04 is different from whatever is 
default on Windows.

Has anyone else seen this effect?  Is there a way to fix or work around it?
