[ISO/IEC 29500-1 1st Edition] embeddedFont (Embedded Font)

This element specifies an embedded font. Once specified, this font is available for use within the presentation. Within a font specification there can be regular, bold, italic and boldItalic versions of the font specified. The actual font data for each of these is referenced using a relationships file that contains links to all available fonts. This font data contains font information for each of the characters to be made available in each version of the font.

[Example: Consider the following embedded font.

  <p:font typeface="MyFont" pitchFamily="34" charset="0"/>
  <p:regular r:id="rId2"/>

end example]

[Note: Not all characters for a typeface must be stored. It is up to the generating application to determine which characters are to be stored in the corresponding font data files. end note]
