More specifically: I finally decided to update my CV and my "executive biography." Since I remembered this discussion, I decided to leave the "lame" Times Roman (my trusty font for the last 2 decades) behind, and use something more flashy.
I was able to find websites that allow installation of various non-standard fonts mentioned in this thread, but - am I at risk that if I send somebody a document in (a) Word or (b) PDF format, he/she won't be able to correctly print or edit it if the non-standard font is not installed on the recipient's computer?
(if yes, then I think I'll stick with something like standard Garamond from MS Word.)
