adding font MetaPlusBold-Roman font

I added MetaPlusBold-Roman font using the following steps

1. I copied the font files MetPBR80.pfb and MetPBR80.pfm to a specific directory /home/xyz.

2. I modified xdo.cfg under JAVA_HOME/jre/lib to include this font as follows

<font family="MetaPlusBold-Roman" style="normal" weight="bold">
<type1 pfb="/home/xyz/MetPBR80.pfb" pfm="/home/xyz/MetPBR80.pfm" />

3. I restarted BIPublisher.

I followed these steps as indicated in this blog

I had previously used these steps to get Voluta Script to show up in my reports viewed as pdf files.

However MetaPlusBold-Roman font is not showing up in pdf files, but is showing up in HTML version of the reports.

Has anyone used this font and got it working?

Thank you.
