I believe that this link will answer your questions, also there is code examples on this page.
I also believe you are correct on imbedded fonts, the pdf viewer will select the desired font
if it is not imbedded and the programmer does not have control over selection.

What I meant to ask was, what method can I use to specify a nonstandard font, i.e. Arial or
MS Sans Serif without having to embed the font in the pdf.  I assume the viewer will find
a substitute if the specified font is not present on the client machine.

I posted this brief code and if you follow it, your questioned is answered. The program creates
a form with the question on top of answer (groups) and having two different fonts for each
line. The information is compared to determine the longest and then spaces the groups accordingly.
Hope this helps.

Subject: Approximate Font

I'm trying to find a simple way to approximate true type fonts without the need to embed the
font into the document.  We have a document management system which create annotations as
graphic overlays.  I need to take those overlays and place them as pdf objects on the document.
 The document management client software allows the user to create text annotations using
any of the true type fonts installed on the system.  How can I create a font description font
that doesn't embed the font and let viewer handle it by approximating the closest font.
