RE: [xep-support] euro sign with font Lucida Handwriting Italic

are you sure that your version of Lucida Handwriting contains the Euro sign?
If not, then it's no mystery why the rectangle is shown - it's the standard
"character". AFAIK XEP has no provisions for having a "fallback font" for
characters that are not defined in the font file.

thanks for your response
I already tried &#128; and &#x80; and &#x20AC;
they all result in a rectangular character, only with that specific font,
very strange

How can I render the euro sign using the font Lucida Handwriting Italic?


The resulting pdf only shows a square where the euro sign should be...


I have no problems with euro signs of other fonts, just with this font.


Other characters of the Lucida Handwriting Italic font render just fine.


My xep font file is correctly configured (we use v4.15).


Any help would be greatly appreciated.



Kind regards,

Stijn Elst.
