In case you missed recent posts, I'm also going to be working on retaining the original embedded fonts, but I don't have any insights on this yet that aren't already in the mailing list archive.  I haven't yet spent the time to figure out how to extract the font.

Best, --josh

Subject: [poppler] Font substitution in pdftohtml

Hi everyone,

I've noticed that with the pdftohtml util, embedded fonts in the PDF are automatically rendered as "Times" in the HTML/CSS. I'm trying to disable the font substitution, and have the fonts listed in the CSS match the original PDF fonts (I realize that these won't display properly unless the user have the correct fonts installed).

I'm looking through the code, but I don't see any obvious places in where the original font name is discarded and substituted with "Times". Could someone point me in the right direction so I can make these changes?

I'm generating complex documents with the -c flag.
