Add new type fonts to Bi Publisher server

Have you ever have that except PDF everything coming from BI Publisher look OK, but in pdf there are question marks like ??????? ???????? ????.
This is because other format use the local machine's fonts but PDF use own fonts.
The solution is to add the missing font type to

$BI_HOME//jdk/jre/lib/fonts/

After font types are copied to server you have to do a font mapping in BIP

"REPORT" -> Configure -> Font Mappings -> Add Font Mapping
