When creating a line style I have used a particular font. This font is no different to what has been used for the black text below. I have the font recourse file saved on my machine but my colleague hasn't. When my colleague opens the dgn the linestyle uses a different font, but the text in black that uses the same font appears ok. How can I fix this issue so that the linestyle appears the same as mine without the need of the font resource file?

It may be helpful if you post a sample file and the resource file used.
That said if you do not want to be reliant on the resource file or font, then you could drop the Text to individual elements and use this for the Linestyles Symbol. As mentioned in this Wiki article
Back in the day, I would never use a text in a line style. I would place whatever text I needed, then drop it. This may no longer be necessary or desired, but you have run into the very problem I always wanted to avoid.

I do see pros and cons to dropping the text. The pro is that I wouldn't need the font .rsc file but the con is that changing the view attributes from wireframe to hidden line to illustration, the dropped font would appear different to that without dropping the text.
I suggest trying Carl's suggestion. Follow the directions in the Wiki article that he supplied with the link..
The text will change from text to a symbol. An "A" will no longer be a text letter but a symbol comprised of 3 lines. This way the text font is not needed and the line style will contain the entire line style definition (including the text symbols).
You can also go one step further and import the line style definition into the drawing so that the person receiving the drawing doesn't need to have your line style resource file.
