    I'm evaluating XEP at this time to use it in a Cocoon web application. I
    face a problem displaying arabic characters with italic style. I joined
    a minimal fo sample and the associated screenshot.
    As you can see on the screenshot, arabic characters are not displayed
    properly when using italic or bold-italic style.

    As I open the generated PDF file with Acrobat reader, I got an error
    message saying: "Can't extract embedded font: GFEDCB+Arial+ItalicMT.
    Some characters won't be properly printed or displayed", and another one
    "A substitute font can't be found" (messages translated from french by me).

    To embed fonts, I uncomment the section relative to Arial font in
    $XEP_HOME/etc/fonts.xml :
        <font name="ArialMT"
          <alias name="Arial"/>
        <font name="Arial-BoldMT"
          <alias name="Arial-Bold"/>
          <alias name="ArialMT-Bold"/>
        <font name="Arial-ItalicMT"
          <alias name="Arial-Italic"/>
          <alias name="ArialMT-Italic"/>
        <font name="Arial-BoldItalicMT"
          <alias name="Arial-BoldItalic"/>
          <alias name="ArialMT-BoldItalic"/>

    Any help appreciated.

    N.B.: I use XEP v3.8.1 Developer Stamped Edition on WinXP Pro with SUN
    JRE 1.4.2_01.
