Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Producing PrintQuailty PDF with Apache fop

Embedding one of the base14 fonts (of which Helvetica is one) can be a 
problem if you don't own the font.  Most PDF browsers and printers have a 
built-in Helvetica font, so an application like fop just needs the font 
metrics (character widths)  to specify and typeset Helvetica, relying on 
the downstream renderer to supply the font outlines when the text is 
rendered.  I don't know if a Mac OS X has the font outlines for Helvetica.
