Issues embedding licensed fonts & Adobe's font permissions

Hi all!

I wanted to create a thread where we can vent our problems and successes embedding licensed fonts. I also need some help.

Adobe Fonts

http://www.adobe.com/type/browser/le..._licenses.html

Here is a list of fonts that are marked as embeddable and editable:

http://www.adobe.com/type/browser/le..._Embedding.pdf

I have one font I want to work which is Myriad Pro Light. This font is in that list but still does not work. Perhaps it is deemed to be an installable font when used in ePubs which would prevent it from being used at all. Term installable explained here: http://www.adobe.com/type/browser/info/embedding.html

I used the normal @font-face method

CSS

Code:
@font-face {
	font-family:"Myriad Pro Light";
	font-style:normal;
	font-weight:300;
	src : url("../font/MyriadPro-Light.otf");
}

h3 {

color:#443f45;
	font-family:"Myriad Pro Light", sans-serif;
	font-size:2.083em;
	font-weight:300;
	line-height:1.2;
	font-style:normal;
	 }
content.opf contains

Code:
<item id="MyriadPro-Light.otf" href="font/MyriadPro-Light.otf" media-type="application/vnd.ms-opentype" />
META-INF folder contains file specific to enable embedded fonts in iBooks

com.apple.ibooks.display-options.xml

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<display_options>
<platform name="*">
<option name="specified-fonts">true</option>
</platform>
</display_options>
I also have a encryption file that I THINK came from when I exported to ePub from Indesign in the beginning of my production. I am guessing this is causing the issue, I will play with it more tomorrow.

Encryption file content

Code:
<encryption xmlns="urn:oasis:names:tc:opendocument:xmlns:container" xmlns:enc="http://www.w3.org/2001/04/xmlenc#">

	<enc:EncryptedData>
		<enc:EncryptionMethod Algorithm="http://www.idpf.org/2008/embedding" />
		<enc:CipherData>
			<enc:CipherReference URI="OEBPS/font/MyriadPro-Light.otf" />
		</enc:CipherData>
	</enc:EncryptedData>
	
</encryption>

Anyone had any luck with this font or similar situations? Grateful for any help, thanks.
