    This is a known and documented limitation. For most Type 1 fonts,
    we can access only characters from the embedded encoding.

    The formatter has no problems finding them; but output generators
    are not yet capable of defining custom encodings for fonts. It is
    in the TODO list, but with a relatively low priority: in most cases,
    it is possible to reencode the font outside XEP.

    Best regards,
