    Of course, there is no such thing as "any machine". But 50-80% (depending on country and who you ask) of Internet users use IE, which supports EOT font embedding. If this is not enough Safari supports raw font embedding, as well as FireFox 3.5 and Opera10 Betas. Having single font in EOT and raw font is not big problem.

    Percentage of machines that can shape text according to OpenType complex script shaping specifications is even higher than IE market share, it is even higher than Windows market share. Uniscribe, Pango, ICU, Apple, Adobe all support OpenType-based shaping (not for all scripts, of course), so this should not be a problem to use OpenType fonts for embedding.
