I am using XEP (unsure of the version #) to create PDF from XSLT. The
output looks correct on my system but when the client runs the same XSLT/FO
(using a different version of XEP, unsure what #) none of the ZapfDingbats
characters output. We have gone round and round about this but currently
the client is coming back with “If the font is not embedded, the rendered
file can only be viewed on systems that have the font configured for use
with viewing or printing the application.”
My understanding is, once the PDF is rendered, and unless it is then
reopened in some program capable of editing it, the PDF is set in stone. So
any PDF viewer on any machine (Linux, Mac, Windows) with any (or no) fonts
installed will show it as rendered. The problem with rendering the font is
located on the machine doing the rendering not the machines later doing the
viewing. Is this correct and could someone explain the quoted sentence
above with an example?
What else might be making their rendering not output the correct fonts while
my output (using the exact same transformations) renders correctly?
