Description of problem:
As an example, please see this PDF:
http://www.ualberta.ca/~ygu/publications/christian_gji.pdf

It uses several serif fonts that are not embedded:
TimesNewRomanPS
TimesNewRomanPS-Italic
TimesNewRomanPS-Bold
TimesNewRomanPS-BoldItalic
TimesNRMT-SemiBold

When I view it in Firefox's pdf.js, the title and headings are serif, but when
I view it in evince, the title and headings are sans-serif. I know pdf.js is
not a perfect renderer, but at least it picks the right font.

I filed this report under fontconfig because it is returning the wrong font:

$ fc-match TimesNewRomanPS
DejaVuSans.ttf: "DejaVu Sans" "Book"

$ fc-match TimesNewRomanPS-Italic
DejaVuSans.ttf: "DejaVu Sans" "Book"

$ fc-match TimesNewRomanPS-Bold
DejaVuSans.ttf: "DejaVu Sans" "Book"

$ fc-match TimesNewRomanPS-BoldItalic
DejaVuSans.ttf: "DejaVu Sans" "Book"

$ fc-match TimesNRMT-SemiBold
DejaVuSans.ttf: "DejaVu Sans" "Book"

Using similar fonts nets the correct result:

$ fc-match TimesNewRoman
LiberationSerif-Regular.ttf: "Liberation Serif" "Regular"

$ fc-match Times
n021003l.pfb: "Nimbus Roman No9 L" "Regular"

I am not sure of the difference here, but at least the results are serif.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fontconfig-2.10.2-2.fc18.x86_64

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download above PDF.
2. Open in Firefox's pdf.js
3. Open in evince

Actual results:
Differing fonts for title and headings.

Expected results:
Same fonts for title and headings.
