Does Mathematica embed non-Mathematica fonts in exported EPS files?


In Mathematica 8.0.4.0 on Windows 7, it seems that EPS files will only
embed Mathematica fonts (Math1 et al.); if one tries to use some other
font, one gets something like this in the EPS file:

1. In the header comments:

%%DocumentNeededResources: font TrumpMediaeval-Roman
%%DocumentSuppliedResources: font Mathematica1
%%+ font TrumpMediaeval-Roman-MISO
%%DocumentNeededFonts: TrumpMediaeval-Roman
%%DocumentSuppliedFonts: Mathematica1
%%+ TrumpMediaeval-Roman-MISO
%%DocumentFonts: TrumpMediaeval-Roman
%%+ Mathematica1
%%+ TrumpMediaeval-Roman-MISO

2. when the font is used:

%%IncludeResource: font TrumpMediaeval-Roman-MISO
%%IncludeFont: TrumpMediaeval-Roman-MISO
6.12 /TrumpMediaeval-Roman-MISO Msf
0 5.64 m
(4) N

I would very much prefer that all the fonts be embedded in the EPS
file, as per Mathematica's documentation. In the help at ref/format/
EPS, it is written that EPS files "Can include fonts and embedded
raster graphics."

Even the use of PrivateFontOptions (a practically undocumented
feature) does not help.
