Subject: Re[2]: [docbook-apps] docbook.xsl/fo different bullet symbols for itemizedlists

Hello Bob,

It's quite unclear for me what do you mean by this test... there is no
special 'bullet support' in XSL FO processors. Bullet is just a
regular character and it will be rendered correctly if current font has
appropriate glyph. The standard font for bullets is Adobe standard
Zapf Dingbats (BTW, you can find a sample which demonstrates the whole glyph
repertory of this font in XEP distribution: examples/charsets/zapf-dingbats.fo)
The glyphs marked in your table with 'yes' for XEP are those available
in Zapf Dingbats. If you want to use any other bullets you have to provide
XEP with appropriate font.

Best regards,
Alexander Peshkov                             mailto:peshkov@renderx.com

BS> I think these alternate bullet characters were turned off because FOP does

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

BS> If full Unicode fonts were in wide use, then these characters would likely

BS> hi,

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

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

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

BS> <xsl:otherwise>&#x2022;</xsl:otherwise>
BS> </xsl:choose>
BS> ###########

BS> does anybody know how to fix this?

BS> thx+cu
