Subject TTFReader and MacOsX .ttf fonts
Date Fri, 17 Feb 2006 09:41:06 GMT

I am using version 0.91 beta.

I am trying to register OS fonts with FOP, in order to embed them in PDF documents. On MS
windows this works fine, but on MacOSX almost all of the .ttf-fonts cannot be read 
by the org.apache.fop.fonts.apps.TTFReader. I get an unsupported format error, fx:

- Number of glyphs in font: 841
- 2 cmap tables
- Unicode cmap table not present
- Unsupported format: Aborting

And the reader returns null. As far as I know, the .ttf format on Mac is not exactly the same
as on windows, so the output is fairly fair, but not being able to read .ttf 
files on other platforms kind of disables the platform transparency advantage of Java.

And then to the question:

Does anyone know a workaround - fx a Java converter from Mac .ttf to windows .ttf or do I
have to write my own MacTTFReader?

Thanks in advance.

- Torben
