Hi Christof,

Actually, this problem recurs in group discussions -- search the group
with keywords: (fonts embedding).

In the past, I have copied-as Metafile (as you suggest), and pasted
into Powerpoint (or MSWord), then, I've embedded the fonts (within
Powerpoint, on the computer with Mathematica):

       Tools->Save Options
          Check the box "Embed TrueType Fonts" and
          select "Embed All Characters"

Unfortunately, sometimes this doesn't seem to work, and I've long
since lost track of whether the misbehavior was traceable to different
versions of Mathematica, Powerpoint, or whatnot.  Although the image
quality is not as good, I now copy-as Bitmap, and avoid all these

Hopefully, others will chime in with what works in a failsafe manner
nowadays (for WMF Metafile).
