Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] docbook.xsl/fo different bullet symbols for itemizedlists

I think these alternate bullet characters were turned off because FOP does
not support any of them.  I ran some tests on the various FO processors, and
this table summarizes what I found for likely bullet characters:

Description       Unicode   FOP   XEP   Antenna House
----------------  --------  ----  ----  -------------
Bullet            2022      yes   yes      yes
Ring operator     2218       no    no      no
Black square      25A0       no   yes      yes
White square      25A1       no    no      yes
White circle      25CB       no    no      yes
Black circle      25CF       no   yes      yes
White bullet      25E6       no    no      yes
Large circle      25EF       no    no      no
Ballot box        2610       no    no      no
Ideographic zero  3007       no    no      yes

If full Unicode fonts were in wide use, then these characters would likely
be better supported.

it seems like this isnt implemented in docbook.xsl yet.
snippet from xsl/fo/lists.xsl:

<xsl:when test="$itemsymbol='disc'">&#x2022;</xsl:when>
<xsl:when test="$itemsymbol='bullet'">&#x2022;</xsl:when>

<!-- why do these symbols not work? -->
<xsl:when test="$itemsymbol='circle'">&#x2218;</xsl:when>
<xsl:when test="$itemsymbol='round'">&#x2218;</xsl:when>
<xsl:when test="$itemsymbol='square'">&#x2610;</xsl:when>
<xsl:when test="$itemsymbol='box'">&#x2610;</xsl:when>


does anybody know how to fix this?
