    Do they print? How do "exported" PDFs look when opened in other
    apps? On other platforms? Even with OOo 2 I was able to work
    with cff fonts; the resulting docs just wouldn't save or print

    The bug I referenced was about embedding cff fonts into generated
    documents. If everything does work on Macs, then OOo must use the
    system libs there to the heavy lifting. (Not an unlikely scenario.)

    On X11 platforms OOo generates PostScript or PDF for printing; that
    is where it was unable to support cff fonts. And will continue to
    be unable to support cff fonts until version 3.2 is released.
