Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Opentype fonts

Note that starting from FOP 0.95 (and unofficially from FOP 0.94) this
is no longer required to generate XML metrics files for fonts. You can
rely on the font discovery mechanism described in the section “Basic
font configuration” at the following link:
and that should be just it.

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?
