As I'm getting close to wrapping up this project (yes I got inter-character and word spacing done), I now need to extract any embedded fonts. I already have the PDFontEnum callback that outputs, like so:

  <Font Embedded="Yes" Encoding="WinAnsiEncoding" Name="EFLCGJ+BSISans" Type="TrueType"/>
  <Font Embedded="Yes" Encoding="WinAnsiEncoding" Name="EFLCIL+BSISans,Bold" Type="TrueType"/>
  <Font Embedded="Yes" Encoding="WinAnsiEncoding" Name="EFLCJM+PiFont" Type="TrueType"/>
  <Font Embedded="Yes" Encoding="WinAnsiEncoding" Name="EFLCMN+BSISans,Italic" Type="TrueType"/>
  <Font Embedded="Yes" Encoding="WinAnsiEncoding" Name="EFLCNP+BSISerif" Type="TrueType"/>
<Font Embedded="No" Encoding="(null)" Name="Helvetica" Type="Type1"/> <Fonts>

But I cannot for the life of me figure out how to extract the actual imbedded font data. I need to do this so I can temporarily use it in my TextOut canvas operations. Can you point me in the right direction? Thanks!
