Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] cacute missing in PDF only

Thanks, Bob, for your help.

I've set my project up to use DejaVu, which as seen in the font viewer does include ć in all the families, styles, and weights available.

Looking at your instructions on missing characters:
  • If the entity were entered wrong, I'd expect it to be a problem in all output formats, not just PDF.
  • Regarding named character entities, the character is not defined as ć, but instead just typed it in as a special character or as ć. (neither works)
  • If it were the output encoding, wouldn't the WARNING not be able to recognize the glyph at all, rather than identify it correctly?
  • When I export the RTF to PDF, the ć shows up fine. So I'm guessing it's not the output medium.
  • This is the only character not resolving that I've seen -- though almost all content is English for now -- in PDF, yet the entity resolves correctly in other output formats such as HTML and RTF.

Where else should I look?

cacute is in the ISO Latin2 character set, and I suspect the Helvetica-Bold font that FOP is using has glyphs only for ISO Latin1. If you can find out where LibreOffice gets its fonts, you might be able to configure FOP to use those font files.
Or add a more complete Unicode font to the 'symbol.font.family' stylesheet param as a fallback, although that might be satisfactory if the fallback font does not closely resemble the main font. See:

I have a ć (cacute, ć) missing in PDF (not HTML or RTF).

This seems to be the error:

Oct 5, 2011 7:07:42 PM org.apache.fop.events.LoggingEventListener processEvent
WARNING: Glyph "?" (0x107, cacute) not available in font "Helvetica-Bold". 

If I go into LibreOffice, I can enter ć in Helvetica font and make it bold. (Is Helvetica-Bold something else?)
How should I work around this?

Thanks for your time and your help.
