Yes, MS Word does this too. Fonts can contain four types of
embedding license info:
- No embedding
- Print and preview embedding
- Editable embedding
- Installable embedding
With no embedding, no fonts (or font subsets) are embedded. With
P&P embedding, you can open and print documents, but not edit them
(You can of course do a font substitution to be able to edit the
documents.) Both editable and installable embedding work the same
in Ms Word, but in theory it it legal to permanently install the fonts
on other computers if installable embedding is allowed.
All this is IIRC.
