Laurence,

When Illustrator 9 generates a CEF font from a TrueType font, Illustrator 
convertes the TrueType outlines to the CEF format, so there is no need to 
compress the resulting glyph data. However, Illustrator will subset the 
font based on the selection you make in the export dialog. Hinting is not 
preserved for TrueType fonts; hinting is only preserved when Type1 fonts 
are converted to CEF fonts.
