How to embed fonts and replace fonts in PCL to PDF Converter? How to use mapfont.ini file to map PDF fonts to Windows fonts?

I am trying to get more of my fonts to come out as a vector (scalable) font rather than a raster font. I believe that the answer is in the mapfont.ini file, but I do not know how it is designed. Can you please explain when the entries in the file do?
