Font Embedding in Windows Forms

Thanks to Scott Hanselman (my fellow RD) for this post where he had pointed to a four-part series by Microsoft’s Michael Kaplan on this topic. MichKa’s post talks in detail with sample code on how you can embed fonts in a Windows Forms Application and have it run in any target machine where that font is not available & doesn’t get installed permanently. Please note that I am talking about Windows Client Applications here and not a Web Application where you can use WEFT (Microsoft’s IE only option for the embedded font) or sIFR (Flash-based technique) to embed fonts.
