A simple solution, but maybe putting a burden on your
web server is to convert the formatted text to jpeg images.
This solves several problems:

- no font licensing, jpeg images are just like using the font
  to print on paper.
- no problems with rendering difficult scripts at the client side
- less possibility of others systematically grabbing your
  data for use in competing products (machine convertion of
  jpeg images to text is difficult).

the drawback ofcourse is either a lot of diskspace to save all
possible jpegs for your database, or having to do the convertion
on the fly.
