I really hope that revision 1.2 allows for font embedding in ODF

IMO that is a (the?) major obstacle for sharing documents with other

So, let me state and restate this : ODF will not embed fonts in the
1.2, 1.3, nor in the future, because the format is not meant to focus on
faithful layout rendering. Instead, PDF is meant that. ODF focuses on
office document exchanges.



Hi Charles

I wonder about this last statement, does this mean that if I download a copy of our documentation in .odt format, that if my font is missing from my machine that I will not be able to print a high quality version of that documentation. And worse, if I download a copy of a writer, impress file or draw and wish to print it off in its native file, that I would then have to hunt around and make sure that all of the necessary fonts used in a particular document would have to be installed on my machine so that I could get a high quality print from it?

Just wondering.
