Support is really the wrong word. Adobe supports all TT, PS Type 1 and
OT fonts. Times New Roman and Arial, and Courier are assumed to be on
the system or installed by Reader. The following is from an Adobe Tech

In other words, if you want your document to look exactly as intended
these are the best choices---unless of course you embed the fonts into
your pdf. However, this increases the size of the pdf and not all fonts
are embeddable. Not everyone knows how to make sure embeddable fonts are
embedded, so it is easier to make a dictum: USE ONLY Times New Roman,
Arial, and Courier.
Thank you for the information. It is helpful.
I'm still wondering though, is Courier New considered a different font than Courier?
Yes. The are different fonts.
