If I create .pdf and .swf files with embedded fonts that were supplied with one of Adobe products, lets say I'll use 'MinionPro-Regular', 'MyriadPro-Semibold' and 'NewsGothicStd-Oblique', and if I then publish such a file on-line, do I need a special web embedding licence for these fonts, or does 'editable (embedding)' also cover such use of fonts? Is there any difference between publishing files for commercial and non-commercial purposes? TIA.

There are no issues with embedding Adobe fonts in pdf documents. I doubt it would be an issue with flash files, but I could not give you an authoritative answer.

Thank you. And such .pdf files can then be published on-line, the assumption being that they will be downloaded by users who don't have the Adobe fonts?

Is font embedding in Flash some sort of a taboo topic? Whenever I ask about it, I'm met with a wall of silence. I'm potentially interested in purchasing new fonts, but only if I'd be allowed to embed them in Flash. Therefore I need to know what sort of licence I'd need for that, and what sort of licence my customers would need to publish such files on-line. Dear Adobe, it seems to be a fairly straightforward matter, since I'm interested only in Adobe Original typefaces. If a special licence is needed, then fine, so be it, but please, could someone answer my question?

Yes. But I don't see how I can contact Adobe support other than by phone - I'm interested in a written response in English. I'd be grateful if you could direct me to the appropriate person(s). Thank you.
