I am testing XEP as one of three different XSL-FO tools for rendering a
large Norwegian Dictionary at the University of Oslo, Norway into PDF.
So far XEP seems to work, except that ehen we embed the font we are going
to use, the norwegian charachters æ, ø, å (aelig, oslash, aring), and a lot
of other characters, are not rendered in the pdf-file. The spacing is
correct, and if I copy a part of the text, and paste it into another
application (notepad), the characters appear correctly, so for some reason
it is only the glyph that is not rendered in PDF.
If I embed the whole font, or do not embed the font at all, the wrong
glyphs are displayed, but still a copy and paste will produce correct text
It seems that XEP for some reason misreads the position of the glyphs.
I have also tried to add a glyph-list, but with the same result.
When I render the same fo-file using the Apache FOP, the document are
The "afm" and "pfm"-files are rathers large compared with other font-files,
so I guess there may be an offset-problem. Can anyone confirm this, or even
better, give me a workaround?
The font we are using is copyrighted, but if needed I have got permission
to supply RenderX with a copy of the font on a number of conditions.
