    Font Standards - defaults

      We want to create documents for Adobe Readers that anyone can open without font substitution.
      According to Adobe's documentation there is suppose to be standard built-in fonts so we do not need to embed fonts or risk substitution.
      I can not find this list - does anybody have information on it or can point to a location on Adobe's site where I can research.
      Thank you

          The current popular wisdom is that you just embed your fonts.
          Certainly you have to have a pretty strong reason not to.

          In fact, even the built in fonts are now substituted for most people
          (e.g. A flavour of Arial is substituted for Helvetica).

          The 14 fonts which are specially treated are
          Helvetica (-Bold, -Oblique, -BoldOblique). This is NOT Arial.
          Times-Roman, -Bold, -Italic, -BoldItalic. This is NOT Times New Roman.
          Courier (-Bold, -Oblique, -BoldOblique). This is NOT Courier New.
          Symbol.
