Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] WARNING: Glyph "?" (0xfffd) not available in font "Frutiger-LightItalic".

Mystery solved. It ended up being file corruption of the stylesheet I was using. When I reverted to a previous version, the problem went away.

Hi Jeff,
This is a bit of a mystery.  The Unicode character xFFFD is the Replacement Character, which the Unicode standard says is "used to replace an incoming character whose value is unknown or unrepresentable in Unicode".  You won't find that character in the DocBook stylesheets, nor will you find it any font.
I see that character in the edit window of the UniPad editor sometimes, but I don't think that character is actually in the file. It usually represents a mismatch between the encoding and the bytes in the file.
The footer content with a separator character that you describe is not the stock footer, because it does not display any heading.  I presume that footer is coming from your customization layer. What does that look like?  Have you taken a peek inside the FO output to see what character is in the file?
When you upgraded from DocBook 4.5 to 5.0, did you also start using the namespaced version of the stylesheets?  I'm trying to figure out what exactly changed here.

Subject: [docbook-apps] WARNING: Glyph "?" (0xfffd) not available in font "Frutiger-LightItalic".

When I upgraded from DocBook 4.5 to 5.0, I noticed that I get this font warning when I build using FOP. I haven't changed the version of FOP or the fonts on my system.
The glyph in question is used as a separator character between the page number and heading in the footer. However, I can't find anywhere in the DocBook stylesheets where this separator character is defined. Can anyone help me find it so that I adjust the font for that charactter accordingly?
