Description g.marxen 2005-03-15 16:58:46 UTC
Often there are special fonts coming with special software. 

If you move text formatted with such a font onto another computer without this
font, there can be formatting problems. 

Therfore allow embedding of (true type) fonts in a document like Word does.

I would also like to see more support for embeding fonts into
documents. At least into text documents and presentations. This is often needed
if you move documents to another computer and also need high fidelity for fonts.

Note that font embedding is critical in some cases, such as scientific texts
that use special fonts for mathematical symbols. These documents become
unreadable (or worse yet, misleading) when default fonts are substituted, so
it's pretty much impossible to share such documents in the OpenOffice formats,
or to take them with you on the road without carrying a preconfigured laptop.
