           Summary: PDF Font Embedding Bug with
           Product: cairo
           Version: 1.4.6
          Platform: x86 (IA32)
        OS/Version: FreeBSD
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: pdf backend
        AssignedTo: krh at bitplanet.net
        ReportedBy: robert.ricci at gmail.com

The "Incolsolata" OpenType Font does not seem to embed properly in PDFs created
by Cairo 1.4.6. The PDFs display properly in some viewers, but in others, 
characters are rendered as empty rectangles. Cairo 1.4.0 embedded this font
PDFs just fine. 

I've created a minimal PDF showing this problem, which you can get here:

It displays fine in Adobe Reader 8.0.0, xpdf 3.0.2, and KPDF 3.5.4, but not
in Apple Preview 3.0.9 .

Incolsolata is in OpenType format, and released under the OFL - you can get it

The pdffonts command has this to say about the embedding:
name                                 type              emb sub uni object ID
