I've a fantasy novel where I used a runic font for the introduction of
different chapters. When I sent it to my literary agent in ODF format,
she called me back asking "Why have you put random letters at the
beginning of each chapter?" :'(

Unfortunately, I cannot share this document, but I can surely ask in
the Italian Community for more sample documents, just tell me if you
think is needed.

It would be useful to have a PDF with font included or an image of the
expected document alongside what the users really see when they exchange
documents without font inclusion.

IMO, there should be a online place where people can put these sample
documents.

There is a OOo bug about this topic too:
