Subject AW: Zero width space is displayed as junk character [â€] in PDF

Hi SN, 

That's most likely an encoding problem. I have seen a similar effect with the latest trunk,
if I open the fo file in XMLSpy. Have a look at your application and make sure it saves the
fo file with the same encoding you use for reading. Preferably UTF-8, I guess.

Betreff: Zero width space is displayed as junk character [â€] in PDF

I am using fop 0.20.4.. I need to wrap content inside a block so I am adding zero width spaces
(&#x200B; ) to the long string.. how ever Instead of breaking at zero width space.. it
displays &#x200B; as a special character (â€) in PDF.. 

Here's my xsl code that adds zero width spaces as required

<xsl:template name="hyphenate">
    <xsl:param name="data" />
    <xsl:param name="limit" select="'10'"/>    
        <xsl:when test="string-length($data) &lt; $limit">
            <xsl:value-of  select="$data"/>
            <xsl:variable name="part" select="substring($data, 1, $limit)"/>
            <xsl:variable name="remaining" select="substring($data, $limit+1)"/>
            <xsl:value-of select='concat($part, "&#x200B;")'/>    
            <xsl:call-template name="hyphenate">
                <xsl:with-param name="data" select="$remaining"/>
                <xsl:with-param name="limit" select="$limit"/>

Any ideas why is it happening ?


Personally I'm always ready to learn, although I do not always like being taught
