This is a table (can be imported easily as csv) with a list of fonts, 
whether they can be embedded, outlined, and what issues have been 
detected.... ok only for "helvetica" type and "optima" type fonts.
It reports issues when embedding, outlining, and tests for Spanish and 
Polish diacritics, including EUR symbol, with a final score.
It is not relevant for print uses, rather for screen compatibility 
(especially the thick l).
Hope it is of use to some readers.
