I would end up with font names that I believe are in unicode characters 
and did not display well in Rev.  And I do not know how to resolve that 
at this time  :-(

Example:

Geneva CE
Monaco CE
Times CE
Helvetica CE
Courier CE
ÉqÉâÉMÉmäpÉS Pro W6
ÉqÉâÉMÉmäpÉS Pro W3
ÉqÉâÉMÉmä€ÉS Pro W4
ÉqÉâÉMÉmñæí© Pro W6
ÉqÉâÉMÉmñæí© Pro W3
ª™Œƒœ???
ÉqÉâÉMÉmäpÉS Std W8
Geeza Pro Bold
Lucida Grande CE

Lines 6 through 12 show as characters above the 159 character range and 
are not readable on my English setup here.  I assume that the fonts on 
those lines are unicode.
