> Font Greek Characters
> Palatino (TTF) fine
Palatino covers Greek alphabet.
> Helvetica (afm) nothing/empty
The built-in Helvetica font covers only Adobe ExtendedRoman
charset - that is, a superposition of WinAnsi and MacRoman.
There is a single Greek character there (mu, used as a micro
sign). You can find lists of characters covered by the base
fonts in examples/charsets/ directory in your XEP distribution.
> BookAntiqua (TTF) empty boxes
Same as above. Most probably, there are no Greek characters
in the font. Please check font composition. To see the repertory
of glyphs covered by a font, you can run the following class
from XEP's jar:
java ... com.renderx.fonts.AFM <font_file_name>
It will list all Unicode codepoints that XEP can discern
in your font.
