Mathematica graphics use Mathematica fonts ("MathFonts") for the text 
and PCs without those fonts won't be able to display the graphics 
properly.  You don't have to have Mathematica or MathReader installed, 
but you need to have at least the fonts installed.  They can be 
downloaded from here:

You mentioned that this might not be an option, so you could instead 
generate your graphics without using those fonts:
