Custom TrueType fonts in an ArcMap layout do not display properly when exported, even though the 'Embed All Document Fonts' checkbox is checked. The custom fonts display as garbage characters, or not at all.
Fonts authored with Macromedia Fontographer have an invalid or undefined value in the fsType field that determines if a font can be embedded. This invalid value is not understood by ArcMap, so the font is not embedded.
Modify the fonts to include correct values in the fsType field. Microsoft Font Properties Editor is needed to modify the values and can be downloaded from the link in the Related Information section below.

Reference the Microsoft Typography site listed in the Related Information section for a description on the Font embedding levels.
The font may need to be reinserted into any existing layouts in order to be properly embedded.
