More votes for this issue. I sympathise with the previous poster's frustration
at seeing this defect milestoned as "OOo Later". Three years ago there may still
have been a little bit of scepticism regarding OTF, but there's no question now
about it not being the standard. We're not asking for OpenType *feature* support
on this issue, just the ability to embed OTFs in exported PDFs, which is
something that any PDF-printer-driver program can do (eg PDFCreator).

This should not be flagged as feature but DEFECT.

At the very least the blurb writers could be a little more honest when flaunting
OOo's PDF export feature, but somehow I doubt that "The PDF export feature will
screw up your layout unless you only use TrueType fonts" is quite so attractive
to potential punters.
