Subject Re: FOP Unicode problem
Date Fri, 17 Feb 2006 13:59:53 GMT
ZapfDingbats is one of the base 14 fonts which are available in FOP
without doing anything special (at least when you render to PDF and PS).
So, provided that the Unicode value is correct (I haven't checked), you
can simply specify font-family="ZapfDingbats" and your checkbox should
be shown. So, you see it's a lot simpler than you thought. :-)
