I have both Mavericks & Windows 7 on my MBPr, how do I get fonts in pages to convert?

I have a pages document with three different fonts.

1.Snell Round hand

2.BigCaslon

3.Copperplate

When I send the document over to Windows, it doesn't keep these 3 fonts.

Is there anything I can install or an equivalent font I could use so it'll stay the same?

Have you tried putting the fonts onto a flash drive and putting them on Win7?

Ah I see. That would be AWESOME. Will it be like a picture? Or like actually cut/copy/paste text?
Neither. Fonts are contained in their own file format - basically a container with the font information inside it. That link tells you where to go in each OS to get the fonts working on both OS X and Windows.

It will be just like a normal font that you can use. Cut/copy/paste to your heart's content.
I see. Excellent. 2 questions please forgive my ignorance

1. Where do I export it? Like do I need to transfer the font somehow to windows?

2. If I export it, will I still have it on my Mac or will it be gone? I want to still be able to use that font in pages.

Easiest would be to an external drive, boot to Windows, and you can right click to install them.

Yes.
