I'm trying to build a Microsoft Word template for use by people who do not necessarily have some of the fonts that the template prefers.
In CSS one can define a "font-family", such as
font-family: "Times New Roman", Times, serif; or
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; (which isn't really the standard meaning for "font family", but never mind). But in Word, my understanding (from other Superuser questions) is that Word doesn't have a provision for font substitution in a document.
But is there a way to do the font substitution in a template, as opposed to a document?
My intended use is documents for print and PDF, not for web, so the CSS solution is not an option.
I have my ancient Word 2003 on my desktop, but I can use a more recent version if that will solve the problem.
