Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Some problems with rendering db -> PDF

Hi Bob,

thanks for your suggestions.
I actually found the problem concerning hyphenation.
It was a nested inclusion of docbook stylesheets
mixing 1.62 and an older version.

My problem with greek characters remains. It only occurs
in the titles, in my case it is a book and concerned are
the chapter titles.

The behaviour of different fonts is different, some work,
some show plain nothing, others show an empty box.

Palatino - ok
Helvetica - nothing
BookAntiqua - empty box

Helvetica is an afm font, the others are truetype fonts (eg

Any suggestion how I could work on getting this right ?
