Hi,
I guess it depends what graphics toolkit the student is using?
Opengl based toolkits (fltk, qt) can produce two kinds of ouputs:
* pdf/eps straight out of Octave: those have fonts embedded by default by
Ghostscript,
* latex + pdf/eps files to be post-processed by a latex engine. In this case
you'll have to instruct xelatex to do the font embedding itself.
I know nothing about the gnuplot toolkit so I'll let someone else answer.
