comment Avoid widowed signature lines
Many thanks David. I didn't mean for you to have to fix my signature code too, but it is much appreciated. If I may ask, why might one prefer \widowpenalty to e.g. \nopagebreak?

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.
