Actually, we're not just dealing with dfonts here. Verdana, for instance, is a tradtional MacOS font, as far as I can tell. Also, I think that some font files may have the pfa font already embedded, so going through the ttf version may entail a loss of quality.

Gotit! Verdana is really a normal TTF, but it's stored inside a mac resource fork. Reading it with Fondu will extract a TTF, which can then be embedded as a Type42 using ly:ttf->pfa

I don't understand, you'd have to figure out the right TTF file with FF too? (You have to figure out whether to use the bold, normal, italic or bolditalic variant
