Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Opentype fonts

I use FOP 0.95 but this worked in 0.94 also. You need to process a font metric file (as per FOPs instructions in http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/0.94/fonts.html) and then set up the fop config file so FOP knows about the fonts. I use DejaVu fonts (dejavu.sf.net) and it works fine. Here is the section of the fop config file that I used. I hope this helps. If you need more I can provide scripts and batch files for this process.

Is there an open source FO processor that can handle opentype fonts?  I've tried changing fonts with FOP (which I use now), but I can't get it to work, even with truetype fonts.  I'm currently using Saxon65, XSLT 1.0 and FOP 0.94.  I have also noticed that FOP doesn't support double sided printing.  Is this true?  Or is there a parameter that needs to be set for this to work?
