Subject Using foreign characters without embedding font
Date Mon, 11 May 2009 13:38:23 GMT
i am using fop 0.20.5 on Linux for generating PDF. Now i want to generate
PDF in greek language. I specify font-family="Arial" in the fo and configure
arial.ttf/.xml correctly in userconfig.xml. PDF is generated fine and every
character is displayed as wished. Now when i try to print a PDF of about 50
pages, the printer spooler blows up to 300MB and it takes about 20 Minutes
to print the whole PDF.

If i do not specify font-family="Arial", the PDF is generated with fong
Helvetica and of course all foreign characters are shown as #, but printing
goes as quick as the printer can.

Can somehow use a font with the needed glyphs without getting it embedded in
the PDF?

Thanks in advance,
