As mentioned, OpenType fonts are the way to go.
Install with the Fonts Control Panel (File>Install Fonts).

I just wanted to add that you should make sure the font foundry (company)
allows the font to be embedded in a PDF or other electronic products. Some
foundries require an extra fee; a few don't even allow it at all. Even if
the font can be embedded in the PDF, there may be a _legal_ restriction as
to its usage. (Virtually every Adobe font can be embedded, so they not are
not an issue here, but you should check other font companies.)
