While I thought I had set the compatibility of Distiller to V3.0, when I ran
Distiller just now, the compatibility was set to V4.0, not V3.0. After
setting it to V3.0 and exiting, and then running Distiller again did keep
the V3.0 compatibility setting. So I'll make a .pdf file and try again to
see if this fixes the problem that all words are run together when printing
the document (the .pdf document can still be viewed ok on the screen; the
words aren't run together on the screen).

I think it's currently common for users of Acrobat/Distiller 4.0 to
set the default output to be Acrobat 3.0 compatible. Doug
Gorvetzian has advised me that you can set Distiller's
compatibility option by:

1) Start the Distiller application manually (by selecting Start
-> Programs -> Adobe Acrobat 4.0 -> Acrobat Distiller 4.0)
2) Select Settings -> Job Options
3) On the General tab, set Compatibility to be Acrobat 3.0
4) Close Distiller

(However I don't know if this will fix the specific problem here,
namely all the words being run together when seen in Acrobat 3.0.)

Yes, along with a large number of other problems with Acrobat 4.0
in general...
