I am using my own custom font for my .doc and .pdf documents. Now I want to make these files public (upload on my FTP-server). Is there a way for the other user to see the documents rendered with custom font, without having it installed on their systems? Or a way to embed the font?

This question came from our site for pro webmasters.

Yes. What are you using to create the documents? – iglvzx Apr 11 '12 at 20:15

PDF definitively allows you to embed your fonts (as long as their type is one of the standard ones: TrueType, Type1, etc.).

And every compliant PDF viewer should have no problem to correctly and truthfully render any embedded font.
