Font Substitution, Embedding and Subsetting. Font substitution in PDF will occur when the computer does not have access to the original font.
If the original font is not present, an Adobe Multiple Master typeface is temporarily substituted for missing fonts— Adobe. Serif. MM for a serif fonts, and Adobe. Sans. MM for sans serif fonts. Documents submitted to technical review by the agency may contain formulas and other scientific characters. To prevent the possibility of a character being incorrectly substituted, documents must have fonts embedded. Modern font sets often contain thousands of characters. Completely embedding a font greatly increases the file size of the resulting PDF.
The solution is font subsetting. Subsetting only embeds the characters that are necessary to render the page. Visually, a document with subset fonts and completely embedded fonts looks and prints identically. There is no technical advantage to completely embedding fonts. There is nothing you can do with a PDF that has its fonts completely embedded that you cannot do with a subset file. In Acrobat 5 and earlier, combining subset files could sometimes lead to ballooning of file size.

Type fonts. So, where does that leave us? To my knowledge, the agency hasn’t rejected a filing with fonts that are subset. The M2 e. CTD: Electronic, Common Technical Document.
Specification document specifically allows subsetting of the large Asian font sets. I am concerned that the agency does not insist that Times New Roman, Arial and Courier be embedded. While these fonts are commonly available on all systems, many versions of these fonts have been distributed over the years.
