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.

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.
