Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Multiple languages in PDF?

hi again,

sorry, I forgot to mention this:

I modified the font searching mecanism (I'm on Linux/Debian)
The file is named : fop.xconf, and located in oXygen/lib folder in my case. So you can see, I have installed a lot of fonts in my home directory under .local/share/fonts .

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<fop version="1.0">


  <default-page-settings height="11in" width="8.26in"/>

    <renderer mime="application/pdf">

<directory recursive="true">/home/eric/.local/share/fonts</directory>

Thanks very much for your suggestions. Using <foreignphrase> and the customization you suggested, the font is substituted. However, although I specify Times or Arial, it tries Times-Roman or ArialMT, neither of which include Japanese characters.

Is there some way I can find out the names of the fonts that FOP believes I have installed? It seems like there's some mismatch between what is shown in apps vs. what FOP thinks is actually available.

Next, I was unable to get the <subtitle> element to substitute the font. Here's the customization that I'm trying:

    <xsl:template match="subtitle" mode="section.titlepage.recto.auto.mode">
     Â <xsl:choose>
     Â Â<xsl:when test="contains(' ja ', @xml:lang)">
     Â Â Â <fo:block
    font-family="Times" font-weight="bold">
     Â Â Â Â <xsl:apply-templates select="."
     Â Â Â </fo:block>
     Â Â</xsl:when>
     Â Â <xsl:otherwise>
     Â Â Â <fo:block
     Â Â Â Â <xsl:apply-templates select="."
     Â Â Â </fo:block>
     Â Â </xsl:otherwise>
     Â </xsl:choose>

I must be doing something wrong, but I'm not sure what.

    Customise font here :
    <xsl:template match="d:foreignphrase">
     Â <xsl:choose>
     ÂÂ <xsl:when test="contains(' ja ', @xml:lang)">
     ÂÂÂÂÂ <fo:inline font-family="Hiragino Mincho ProN">
     ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ <xsl:apply-templates/>
     ÂÂÂÂÂ </fo:inline>
     ÂÂ </xsl:when>
     ÂÂÂ <xsl:otherwise>
     ÂÂÂÂÂ <xsl:call-template name="inline.italicseq"/>
     ÂÂÂ </xsl:otherwise>
     Â </xsl:choose>

    "contains" is useful if you can use the same font for different
    languages ... :
     ÂÂ <xsl:when test="contains(' ja ko zh ', @xml:lang)">
     ÂÂÂÂÂ <fo:inline font-family= Hiragino Mincho ProN">
     ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ <xsl:apply-templates/>
     ÂÂÂÂÂ </fo:inline>
     ÂÂ </xsl:when>

    For titles, I would condition attribute font-family in the
    appropriate xsl:attribute-sets="section.titlepage.recto.style based
    on xml:lang as done above.

    To make sure it is not a problem with the font itself :
    1. replace "Hiragino Mincho ProN" with Arial or Times or even
    2. set attribute font-weight="bold"

    Hope this help

    a Ãcrit :

    I'm back with another question.

    I'd like to combineÂEnglish and Japanese text in a single book. I
    can set the @lang attribute on various elements, but the problem is
    that I need to switch fonts, too. The font that I want to use for
    body text doesn't include Japanese characters. I'm not sure how to
    embed Japanese text within a <para> of English and get it to render
    properly. E.g.:

     > <para>The HÅjÅki [æäè] is an important and popular short work
    of the early Kamakura period.</para>

    It seems like I need something akin to <span lang="ja"> to mark the
    Japanese text, and then a customization in the stylesheet to detect
    this and specify a suitable font. However, I'm not sure how I should
    handle either ofÂthese issues.

    I would also like to specify a different font for the <subtitle>
    element. I've tried this customization:

     > <xsl:template match="subtitle"
     > <fo:block xsl:use-attribute-sets="section.titlepage.recto.style"
    font-family="Hiragino Mincho ProN">
     > <xsl:apply-templates select="." mode="section.titlepage.recto.mode"/>
     > </fo:block>
     > </xsl:template>

     > <xsl:template match="subtitle" mode="titlepage.mode">
     > Â <fo:block font-family="Hiragino Mincho ProN">
     > Â Â <xsl:apply-templates mode="titlepage.mode"/>
     > Â </fo:block>
     > </xsl:template>

    ...but it seems to have no effect. The font is not found, though it
    is installed on my machine.

    What am I doing wrong? What's the best way to approach this?
