There are a number of known issues with Fonts and Alignment when using the new 11g Reports font mechanism, such as:

Bug 12321664: INCORRECT FONT DISPLAYED FOR SRW.SET_FONT (first seen in 11.1.1.2, fixed in version 11.1.2)
Bug 9576045: SRW.SET_FONT_SIZE DOES NOT WORK IN REPORTS 11G ON LINUX (first seen in 11.1.1.3, fixed in version 11.1.2)
Bug 13524975: TEXT VIEWER SHOWS DESCENT AND BBOX VALUES INCORRECT AND PDF REPORT IS BLANK
Bug 18461017:  REP-56048 ENGINE RWENG-0 CRASHED AFTER UPGRADING TO 11.1.2.2


This note is intended to suggest a possible alternative solution for these font issues  with subsetting / embedding in the new 11g font mechanism.
