Hi,

>And why would I need UTF-8 to store "​"
you would need UTF-8 because the sign you are using is unicode....

did you set the following line in your xsl file?
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

I also use for instance:
<xsl:text>&#x20;</xsl:text>

and it is working fine...

Files is saved with UTF-8 .. that doesnt solve problem.. a
And why would I need UTF-8 to store "&#x200B;" other encoding would also handle it correctly.. I have no special characters in my xsl that may need UTF-8.
Any way.. it does not work with UTF-8 too


Thanks
SN

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:choose>
        <xsl:when test="string-length($data) &lt; $limit">
            <xsl:value-of  select="$data"/>
        </xsl:when>
        <xsl:otherwise>
            <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"/>
            </xsl:call-template>                           
        </xsl:otherwise>
    </xsl:choose>   
</xsl:template> 
 

Any ideas why is it happening ?

Thanks
SN
