Do you mean "Arial Unicode MS"? The most current version of that font is available on Windows systems that have Office 2003 or later installed, and it does contain the character you specified, which is U+03B1 ("Greek Small Letter Alpha"). The "Symbol" font also contains this character, and I recommend using that instead because it is one of the Base 14 fonts that will always be available in PDF. I think you'll find that if you put "Symbol" first in your font list, it will work. As Mauritz pointed out, FOP does not handle alternate font selections, so it will only use the first font you specify ("Arial Sans Unicode" in your list). If the glyph doesn't exist in that font or in the default fallback font (which I think is always "Times"), you'll get a "missing glyph" symbol. If you do want to load OS fonts such as "Arial Unicode MS", in addition to specifying the font name in the FO, you need to create a FOP configuration file and add the <auto-detect /> instruction, as documented here: http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/0.95/fonts.html#basics ************************* Rob Cavicchio Principal Technical Writer & Information Architect EMC Captiva Information Intelligence Group EMC Corporation 3721 Valley Centre Drive, Ste 200 San Diego, CA 92130 P: (858) 320-1208 F: (858) 320-1010 E: firstname.lastname@example.org The opinions expressed here are my personal opinions.
