I'd have to agree with that one. 

It is incorrect to say that Dreamweaver will only allow you to add fonts
installed on your system to its font list, however. 

In the Properties Inspector, click on the fonts drop down list. Scroll
to the bottom of the list and click on Other. In the Edit Font List
window, type the name of the font you would like to add into the text
field labeled "available fonts." Click on the << button and it will be
added to your list.
