As long as the font allows embedding, it gets (partially) embedded.  
You can overwrite this legal behaviour by using -E for xdvipdfmx, the  
XDVI to PDF convertor (xe(la)tex -output-driver='xdvipdfmx -E',  
adding also -v or even -vv you can see a (vast) bit more of what  
xdvipdfmx is doing).

With xpdf you get the programme pdffonts (and pdfinfo and pdfimages  
and pdftoppm and pdftops and pdftotext).



There are three types of people in this world: those who can count,  
and those who cannot.
