I have some signature (literally) files that are installed as fonts. They
contain my signature, initials, or name. In Word, I can embed the font in
use in the document so that anyone who opens it sees my actual signature as I
sent it, not the keystroke I entered. I would very much like to use these as
a signture for my emails. That being said, obviously no one has that "font"
installed on their machine so they don't see my signature, they see the
keystroke in whatever font it defaults to. Without using Word as my email
editor, is there a way to embed this font with the email so that my signature
shows up correctly?

Nope, even with Outlook as the e-mail editor you can't do this because of
security reasons.

Could create a picture and use that as your signature.
