First question -- What "older" version?

Fonts would not ever behave that way unless you have not created the xep.xml
configuration file correctly and even changed the default.

This fo yields the attached PDF so you have some issue in your

            <fo:root xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format">
                                    <fo:simple-page-master margin-top="1in"
page-height="780pt" master-name="first">
                        <fo:page-sequence master-reference="first">
                                    <fo:flow flow-name="xsl-region-body"
font-style="italic">This is Helvetica Italic</fo:block>
font-weight="bold">This is Helvetica Bold</fo:block>
                                                <fo:block font-weight="bold"
font-style="italic">This is Helvetica Bold Italic</fo:block>


As for the other questions . it all depends on what version you are coming
from. If you are saying that you are coming from version 4. Some number to
later (like 4.24), nothing should change. But if you are coming from over 10
year old 3.x version then it is possible somethings changed in whitespace
inheritance that causes changes.

We are currently migrating from an older XEP Version to newer XEP 4.2x

Using the new XEP Versions showed few differences in the pdf from how it
used to be.


Few Of them are:

1) The text which was previously bold is not shown as bold with the
new version. One thing I noticed here was that whenever I apply a font i.e.
Helvetica and applying the font-weight as bold the text is not shown as bold
but if use a font i.e. Helvetica-Bold directly the text was showing as

2) Some of the page layouts where changed on few pdf's

3) Text inside a table column is misaligned.


What can be the cause, ideally we should not see any change correct ?
