comment Have XeLaTeX use the default Times font in Ubuntu
Thanks Alexander. Unfortunately this answer does not resolve the sine qua non element of the question: "[get] XeLaTeX to use a standard times font (i.e. one that would not be embedded)"

@Herbert - I wanted to use the builtin fonts just to decrease the size of the PDF.

@egreg: I think you're right, based on what I'd been reading too. I'd mark that correct if you posted it as an answer. :)

comment Have XeLaTeX use the default Times font in Ubuntu
Thanks @egreg, but alas I can confirm that both Tex Gyre Termes and even a Times truetype font are embedded in the PDF, according to popper-utils' pdffonts (and same is evident from the file size).

comment Have XeLaTeX use the default Times font in Ubuntu
Thanks @egreg - I do not have a Times font installed as an OTF or TTF. I would be grateful for suggestions about where one might find it. I did try Libertine Serif (as it is described in the package as having the same font metrics as Times), but it was also embedded.

I am not sure the "comments" tag means in this question what it generally means on this forum. :)
