When sharing Word documents with users on other computers, thereís a risk that the document will appear altered if the target computer doesnít have the same fonts installed. This may affect the line breaks, spacing, and overall appearance of your document.
Microsoft Word includes an option to save the fonts that are used in your document with the file. This option allows all readers to see the fonts in your document, even if they donít have the fonts installed. This option increases file size, but should be used if itís important that everyone reading your document sees your fonts the same way.
Additional font embedding options are available as well:
In Microsoft Word 2003, these options are available on the Save tab of the Options dialog (available from the Tools menu):
In Microsoft Office Word 2007, these options are under Word Options, on the Save tab:
See Embedding fonts in Office documents from Microsoft for additional information.
