    I've just downloaded XEP. I wanted to do something in Hebrew
    (Right-to-left) and I have a file in Unicode (UTF-8) and using TrueType
    fonts. I added my font to fonts.xml and it creates a pdf, but when I try to
    open the file I get the following message:

    There was an error processing a page. There was a problem reading this
    document (110).

    I tried it without adding my font to fonts.xml and it created a pdf using
    Helvetica and every character that happened to be in the Helvetica font,
    showed up, otherwise a blank page. But it opened in Acrobat Reader.

    I tried saving the font as Type 1, updated fonts.xml and have the same
    message from Acrobat Reader.

    I tried another file using Syriac (also right-to-left script) and got the
    same message.

    Any ideas?

    So does XEP support Unicode TrueType fonts?

    Does XEP support RTL scripts?
