In Microsoft Word, documents saved as Rich Text Format (RTF) files may not display embedded fonts as expected.
Note The Font box on the Formatting toolbar displays the embedded font style even when the font has been substituted.
This behavior can occur if the document is saved as an RTF file. Word does not mark the font's styles (bold, italic, and so forth) as being used. As a result, the font does not get embedded, and the nearest font style is substituted.
