It sure does; I use it this way every day. You will need to set your
X terminals up to use a remote font server. That font server should
export the AbiWord fonts as part of its font path. You will need the
fonts (locally) where the application is running (client side).

The default installation is certainly not configured for remote display,
and we're looking into ways to make this easier. AbiWord runs through
a wrapper script (probably /usr/share/abisuite/bin/AbiWord or
/usr/local/AbiWord/bin/AbiWord on your system), which simply does
"xset fp+ /font/path", and does "fp-" when you close AbiWord. It
also sets $ABISUITE_HOME.
If you do both these tasks manually (like putting the variable in your
login scripts), or put the fonts in the X server path on the X term,
you can directly run the binary (/usr/share/AbiSuite/bin/AbiWord_d or
/usr/local/AbiSuite/bin/AbiWord_d--or the static ones if you prefer)
without the wrapper script.
