Hmmm. Books and resumés, I know about. You use a font that you
can legally embed, so the reader gets the same experience that
you do, without substitutions by their local OS and software.
If they demand a Word version, instead of PDF, then all bets
are off, regardless.

But what about web sites?

I tinker with html... I'm not a guru. Is there provision to
"embed" (download to the visitor) your own special fonts,
so they don't end up viewing your marvelous, arteestic page
in Times New Roman and Arial? When you built it with
the deliciously arcane "Pseudo-science Retro Oblique"?
