Hi Karl,

I think that depends on the setting. If that is not the case
by default, users can override the default by

dvipdfmx -f dlbase14.map ...

where the map file dlbase14.map must exist under

% dlbase14.map
% urw fonts (in Ghostscript) are embedded for the Base 14 fonts.
% dvipdfmx -f dlbase14.map ... ...
