    When i download fonts does that mean all receivers of my emails/documents i attach will see that font? If not, then why add fonts if only visible to me?

    How do I determine which ones will be compatible with a PC?

    Sharon: Not in email, no. Typically, you would have fonts for print projects. Or, for PDF creation too. Software developers can embed the fonts into their projects so the end users don't need them installed. Sometimes your work colleagues will all use the same font for projects. Also, often you need a font just for yourself. For instance a font with musical notation or special symbols for knitting patterns and such.
