I  have produced PDFs using Scribus for attachment to e-mails, which have to 
be readable on all platforms. One I produced was far too large, but I noticed 
that a number of fonts were only used in block headers, and I tried 
converting those headers to paths. The result was a huge reduction in the 
size of the PDF file.

So if you are using exotic fonts for illustrative purposes and only a few 
letters, rather than have the whole font file included in your output, 
convert it to paths.
