    I have the XEP 3.6.3 client and am trying to follow the steps to
    configure support for some additional Adobe OpenType fonts I have. The
    fonts are part of the "Adobe Type Basics OpenType Ed." collection.
    Following the instructions in the manual I added some additional lines
    to the fonts.xml file. Here is an example of the additional font lines
    I have added:

    <font name="AGaramondPro-Regular"
      <alias name="AGaramondPro"/>

    When I convert a .fo file to .pdf the conversion seems to be working and
    I get a pdf that mentions the new font. However, I also get an error
    message(or warning, not sure which) from XEP stating that the font
    cannot be embedded. When I look at the document properties in Acrobat
    it shows that the fonts have been substituted with some other font
    instead of the one I am expecting.

    I do not understand why XEP cannot embed the font properly. Just to
    make sure the font can be embedded I created a small FrameMaker document
    that uses the font and then generated a PDF file from it using Acrobat
    Professional. When I did this it successfully embedded the font in the
    PDF without any warning.

    One area where I'm a bit confused is with the three adobe- attributes in
    the <font> element. How can I determine what these should be set to for
    my fonts? Also, what is the list of possible values for these

    Many thanks.
