As a follow-on to a recent post:

1) Suppose I prepare a graphic -- or any Mathematica output -- with an 
Input cell containing

   StyleForm[ "my text", FontFamily-> "someFont" ] 

with "someFont" being available on my system; and Mathematica doesn't 
give me any error messages about missing fonts or other problems when I 
evaluate that cell; and the resulting Output cell appears OK on screen; 
and I then save that Output cell to a file (on the same system).

Shouldn't *all* the characters in "my text" then be in "someFont"?

(Or else an error msg be delivered?  Can I trust StyleForm to do what 
it's told to do?)

2)  Should it make *any* difference in the exported file whether I 
accomplish the above using the Edit >> Save Selection As >> EPS menu 
command, or by evaluating an Export[ ] cell in my notebook?

This is with Mathematica 5.1 on Mac OS 10.3.9.
