Subject: Re: [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:firstname.lastname@example.org RenderX BS> I think these alternate bullet characters were turned off because FOP does BS> not support any of them.
