If you publish to a PDF/A style, the document fonts are automatically embedded in the file. Some licensed fonts are meant to be viewed only in the original document, however, and you are prohibited from redistributing the font. Therefore, before publishing to the PDF/A style, you must make sure that you can redistribute the fonts. To view the licensing information and embedding restrictions for a font, you can use a tool such as the font properties extension tool that is available for free on the Microsoft Website.
