[reportlab-users] PDF created in ReportLab looks awesome in Foxit, awful in Adobe

The problem may be that I'm registering and using Consolas (a TrueType font
bundled with Windows) rather than one of the built-in fonts; I need a
monospaced font that retains readability at 8 points or so, and Courier
just isn't cutting it.

I'm attaching a sample PDF, which looks great when opened in Foxit Reader
5.3 but is barely legible (broken and overlapping letters) when opened in
Adobe Reader X.

I haven't done much experimentation yet; I just wanted to ask first whether
this is a common / known issue?
