In this scenario, the font embedding is determined
by the way Distiller is set up when you make the PDF.
If the WMF uses fonts that are installed on your system
and if Distiller is set up to embed that font, then the
font will be embedded in the final PDF. If a font that
was used in the WMF is not installed on your system,
a substitution to an available font is performed by
FrameMaker, and the Distiller settings determine whether
that substituted font is embedded.

The ruling concept is that the WMF itself is not embedded
in the final PDF. Instead, the PDF contains a rendering
of the WMF just as if you had printed it to a laser printer.
(The only graphics that are directly embedded in the final
PDF are placed PDFs and EPSs.)

A further thought/question. If I:

1. save the visio as .wmf.
2. import the .wmf into .fm
3. print .fm as .pdf

the graphic in question will still only have the font
names and not the font itself?
