PDF is self-contained. Its purpose is to be stand-alone, i.e., not to  
use external resources. One exception is a set of 35 PostScript fonts  
which are built into any PostScript printer. And that PDF viewers can  

Maybe you can convince Adobe to do something for you in PDF v. 1.7  
(or 1.8), allowing different font use in documents following PDF/A or  
PDF-X meant for printing/archiving and for those to be used on-screen.



Isn't vi that text editor with two modes... one that beeps and one  
that corrupts your file?
