[tdf-discuss] Re: Font Embedding in ODF (was RE: ANN: ODF 1.2 Candidate OASIS Standard Enters 60-Day Public Review)

So are you saying your word documents embed fonts on a daily basis?
I've never seen any similar documents. You get the impression of that
-maybe- because on a windows to windows environment everybody uses
fonts that are already available on the system. Of course, ODF (and
others) do keep the reference of the font name and if I have the same
font on my system it will try to reuse the same font. But just for
reference: except for specific cases: office document formats including
MSOffice DON'T include fonts. PDF does (there are less used formats)
and that's what it's know for.


YES. I embed the fonts in ALL Powerpoint documents. I could do the same in
Word documents if I wished.

In MS Office you just have to tick one option box "Embed TrueType fonts"

It's not a reference. It's the font embedded. And it doesn't depend "on
specific cases". It's a USER decision.

I think is really absurd that a TDF SC member makes such affirmations. You
have the responsibility to verify the facts before stating the same
statement vehemently twice.
