It would seem to me that we should  limit fonts to those on the user’s computer plus those
we can load from google (provided the internet is up). That would be simplest with least overhead.
(Any  other font available via internet would also be OK.) Drawback, if when the user reedits
the file, the internet or site is down might cause some problems.

About 4 MB when you include everything. It was just an idea...
