Subject: embedding fonts in generated pdf


this is not strictly a DocBook question, but I hope that the question is
common enough in this community that someone may actually be able to help.

For an IEEE paper submission I need to embed the used fonts into the
pdf. I'm using fop, and `pdffonts paper.pdf` reports

name                  type              emb sub uni object ID
--------------------- ----------------- --- --- --- ---------
Helvetica             Type 1            no  no  no     181  0
Times-Roman           Type 1            no  no  no     182  0
Times-BoldItalic      Type 1            no  no  no     183  0
Courier               Type 1            no  no  no     184  0
Times-Italic          Type 1            no  no  no     185  0
Times-Bold            Type 1            no  no  no     186  0

http://www.sagehill.net/docbookxsl/AddFont.html suggests that I need to
generate a font metrics file for the fonts I'd like to embed. So I'm
looking for the above fonts on my system (Fedora 17).

I have found a "urw-fonts" package, apparently containing "...good
quality versions of the 35 standard PostScript(TM) fonts...". However,
the font names don't match the above.

Any suggestion as to how to embed the standard (default) fonts when
generating pdf from DocBook ?
