Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Change in font messing up TOC

It sounds like a mismatch of font glyphs and font metrics.  What XSL-FO
processor are you using, and did you do anything to configure it to use the
Verdana font?

Subject: [docbook-apps] Change in font messing up TOC

> Hello all,
> I have a book file that, when I generate the toc using the default font

> When I use the following in my customization layer:
> <xsl:param name="body.font.family" select="'Verdana'"></xsl:param>
> the numbers in the TOC are no longer right aligned. When I reduce the
> font size to 8pt, the TOC numbers return to the correct alignment.
> However, now the body text of my entire document is 8pt, which is not
> acceptable.
> I'm at a loss as to what I need to change. I'm guessing that the change

> its corresponding page number. But I don't know how to adjust that
> Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
