Subject Font Discrepencies in rastered images
Date Wed, 01 Aug 2001 13:01:43 GMT
We're using Batik to convert SVG to JPEG, and have noticed inconsistencies
between how SVG Viewer displays the SVG, and how the Batik-generated JPEG
looks, specifically with regards to the fonts. I have included a PDF file
that contains images showing the problem:

First off, it appears as though SVG Viewer accepts font members,  while
Batik accepts only font families. For example, "Helvetica Condensed Bold"
works as expected in the SVG Viewer, but Batik does not. All of this is
occuring on the same machine (the viewing and the conversion to JPEG from
SVG), so it isn't a "font doesn't exist" issue. These are all System Fonts.

Next, the weighting of a font has no effect, in SVG Viewer, on the
dimensions of the text. However, when converted to a JPEG, the text
dimensions are considerably different.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
