I don’t know why it’s not outputting the appropriate font — you shouldn’t encounter any unique issues laying something out in InDesign vs. Illustrator. But since it’s specifically a font issue, I’d go ahead and outline the fonts (Type > Outline) before you save — that way it’s converted to a vector and you don’t have to worry about how the font actually saves. I’d just make sure you have a version with the text still editable, in case you need to go back and change something!

This may be more trouble, but have you tried just making a brand new type box and re-typing your text?  (Re-typing, not copy/paste.)

I recently upgraded from super crappy AI 9/PS 6 on a PC to CS3 on a brand new Mac. All the stuff i did on the PC is readable, but I forgot that not all the same fonts I used were loaded in…so it did default some of my fonts to ugly stuff.  On screen, unless I tried typing something or clicking on the type box, though, it looked right. (It does give you a warning, though, so it sounds like that’s not your problem.

glad u got it fixed. InDesign CS3 is still a little buggy and I recently learned that all CS3 programs are having font issues. I heard there is something you have to do to "update" your fonts for them to work in CS3, but I haven’t had a chance to even look up what that is yet.
