Subject RE: Bullet points in japanese
Date Mon, 14 Jan 2008 15:17:30 GMT
Could you help me set the IPAGothic font as the font for the list - so that
the bullets show?

Bullets in IPAGothic (and in MS fonts) are &#12539; (&#x2022 doesn't work
for me.).
Setting the bullet in common/ja.xml  <l:dingbat key="bullet"
text="&#9679;"/> as such doesn't work.

In the custom stylesheet, we have the following section:
 <!-- Fallback font used for Unicode symbols such as right arrow -->

  <xsl:param name="symbol.font.family"
             select="'Symbol,ZapfDingbats,LucidaUnicode'" />

  <xsl:template match="symbol[@role = 'symbolfont']">
    <fo:inline font-family="Symbol">
      <xsl:call-template name="inline.charseq" />

I tried adding the font name after LucindaUnicode, but that didn't work!

Many thanks!

Yes the glyphs available depend on the font-family selected in your FO.
List items are split into Labels and Body elements. Its completely
normal to use one font for the label and a different font for the body.
A lot of bullet style glpyhs are available in the ZapfDingbats font.
Then you can use a Font containing Japanese glyphs for the list body.
