That's great! I didn't know about pdffonts… Well, I don't know much about fonts in general :)
So, now that's quite complicated (for me). This is what I get:

I guess Apple Symbols and txsy are there because of mathematical symbols,
but what about Termes and Times-Roman? Also, is that TimesNewRomanPSMT the “official” Times New Roman,
or a “quasi”-Times? I ask because my publisher seems to have strict font requirements,
and has asked me to check that my paper be entirely in Times New Roman…
