Thanks for both answers, it works with Corel Draw when the fonts are in 
system indeed, except that with SerlioTLStd font it cries “font 
SerlioLTStd-Identity-H” not found and only goes further if I choose a 
substitution with Serlio LT Std (which is the same font minus 
“Identity-H” that is the font encoding I guess).

Anyway I did what I wanted and thanks for hints.
