Cairo uses glyph indices in both the API and in the PDF file to refer to each
glyph. It is not possible to rely on an external font to the PDF as the font
glyph indices used to create the PDF may not be the same as the glyph indices
in the font used to render the PDF.

A PDF reader that does not support embedded fonts is a broken PDF reader.
Almost all the PDFs I have seen embed the fonts. I suggest filing a bug report
with Android about the lack of embedded font support.
