As usual, it all depends. A brief document with outlines
instead of fonts will be fine. But a book length document
with lots of text, all of it outlined, would be huge. The
detailed description of the letter "o" for example will
take up more space than the pointer to that letter in a
font file. If the text is outlined that description will
be repeated over and over again. So the answer is
different depending on the amount of text involved.
I will conduct a brief experiment to indicate the
magnitude of the difference.
