As it's stated in our documentation, current version of XEP has
limited support for OpentType fonts. Properties 'adobe-encoding',
'adobe-ordering', 'adobe-supplement' are determined by Adobe for each
font and it's up to the font owner to provide those values. Note also
that XEP is a Java program, it is platform independent and does not
use font facilities provided by operating system (Windows in your case).
Extended support for OpentType fonts will be implemented in the XEP
version 4 that will be available in a few months.

PK> Hi all,
PK> We've got a problem regarding XEP and OpenType fonts.
PK> We have an OTF font called Minion Pro on a WindowsXP-Pro Machine. We try to
PK> use this one within XEP. But then te problem occures. What do we have to
PK> fill in values for the 3 attributes:
PK> - adobe-encoding
PK> - adobe-ordering
PK> - adobe-supplement
PK> XEP manual is pretty vague about this. We have no clue what the XEP engine
PK> does with this information.
PK> We have no clue what values are required.
PK> <font name="MinionPro-Regular"
PK> adobe-encoding="Unicode" <---- ???
PK> adobe-ordering="Latin1" <---- ???
PK> adobe-supplement="1" <---- ???
PK> <alias name="OTFMinionPro-Regular"/>
PK> Isn't there any way of using this font in XEP without using these 3
PK> attribute values?
PK> This OTF font Minion Pro works fine through the whole windows
PK> operatingsystem. We can use it in MS Word, Text editors, Charmap, Wordpad,
PK> Photoshop without any problem. What is the problem here with XEP?
