Default Embedding problem in MS Word

I've encountered an embedding problem in MS Word 11 (2003).

I produce a document, in which the typefaces are 'Minion Pro' and 'Myriad', and this document is distributed in PDF; that causes no problems. But for a sound reason, I have to give someone a Word version, and he hasn't Minion or Myriad. Embedding the various original fonts doesn't work in Word, because the files are all OTF (why not, Microsoft?), but embedding the fonts as TTF files does; at least up to a point, for whereas Minion Pro regular (a text face) is embedded, Minion Pro Semibold Subheading is not.

Possibly, Word can only embed a limited number of fonts of any one kind and is fazed by subtleties such as text and subheading fonts; that is the only explanation that I can think of, but perhaps you can think of something different.
