RE: [xep-support] OpenType Font in XEP 4.4

I want to use the 'MyriadPro' OpenType font in XEP 4.4.

So I have put some some OTF Files in the fonts folder of XEP.
Then I have changed the xep.xml file:
<fonts xmlns=""

 <font-group label="Base 14" embed="false">

 <font-family name="MyriadPro">
  <font><font-data otf="MyriadPro-Regular.otf"/></font>
  <font style="italic"><font-data otf="MyriadPro-It.otf"/></font>
  <font weight="bold"><font-data otf="MyriadPro-Bold.otf"/></font>
  <font weight="bold" style="italic"><font-data

The following error occurs during XEP is running:
[error] fil:/P:/xmlConverterBeta/sys/xep440/xep.xml: Cannot add font
descriptor to font family 'MyriadPro'; element skipped
[error] com.renderx.fonts.FontConfigurationException: No metric
information present for font null

Is there anything wrong or maybe these OpenType font will not work with
XEP 4.4?
