Chapter 10. Managing Fonts > Exchanging Fonts with Other Windows Users

Exchanging Fonts with Other Windows Users

When you share documents containing fonts that aren't part of the Windows standard assortment, you have to take special precautions to ensure other people see the document as you intend it to be seen. If your ultimate output medium is paper, of course, all you have to do is print the document. However, if you plan to send your document as an email attachment, you need to be concerned about fonts.

If the person to whom you're sending the document has the same fonts installed on his or her system, you have nothing to worry about. If the font in question isn't installed, however, Windows Me substitutes an installed font that resembles the original. So, if your original document uses Palatino body type (a serif font) and Haettenschweiler headings (a sans serif font), Windows substitutes the boring Times New Roman and Arial fonts instead. Figure 10.7 shows the original formatted document and how the document appears with fonts substituted.
