In order to embed fonts in pTeX,
rewrite the file


as follows, for example:

%% ASCII pTeX Examples

%% Ryumin and GothicBBB found in PostScript printers:
rml  H Ryumin-Light
gbm  H GothicBBB-Medium
rmlv V Ryumin-Light
gbmv V GothicBBB-Medium

----> change the above like

%% ASCII pTeX Examples

%% embed Hiragino fonts:
rml   H HiraMinProN-W3.otf
gbm   H HiraKakuProN-W6.otf
rmlv  V HiraMinProN-W3.otf
gbmv  V HiraKakuProN-W6.otf
