I don't know much about InDesign CS2 so I may be asking questions way off the mark here. However, did you somehow get the text "in back" of your Master page image? You know, forget to "bring the text forward?" Do you have to "flatten" the file in order to save as a PDF?

I can't tell you the number of times I've click on a wrong button or simply forgotten some step simply being in a rush for a deadline or just becoming so complacent when you've done this stuff a million times. Then again, can it be the client who doesn't really know how to use PDF? (I've been frustrated with that problem too!)

Just some suggestions,
