With PDFs and other formats, you can let the end-user's computer
supply a "reasonable" substitute for a font that you used to create a
document, or you can embed (if allowed) the font, or you can embed
just the characters that you actually use.
What's the approach when it's webbish stuff or WebHelp, and the new
corporate font is not commonly available?
When I've occasionally done my own web pages, I've always used default
fonts or I've outlined anything that needed to maintain a certain
look, on the premise of "better safe than WingDings". Current
employer uses webhelp for some products.
Don't go away. We'll be right back. Â.
