Subject Font substitution
Date Tue, 22 Dec 2009 19:10:35 GMT

I am attempting to substitute Ghost Script fonts for the Base 14
fonts. My configuration file has the following section:

        <from font-family="Times"/>
        <to font-family="Nimbus Roman No9 L"/>
        <from font-family="Times" font-style="italic"/>
        <to font-family="Nimbus Roman No9 L" font-style="italic"/>
        <from font-family="Helvetica"/>
        <to font-family="Nimbus Sans L"/>
        <from font-family="Courier"/>
        <to font-family="Nimbus Mono L"/>
        <from font-family="Symbol"/>
        <to font-family="Standard Symbols L"/>
        <from font-family="ZapfDingbats"/>
        <to font-family="Dingbats"/>

The gsfonts are registering OK. Where I've used an explicit font it
gets embedded. Yet when FOP has to make a choice it still uses
Helvetica and doesn't embed the Nimbus font in it's place. What am I
missing in the configuration? Also, when I run FOP it always reports:

WARNING: Font "ZapfDingbats,normal,700" not found. Substituting with

What are those fonts generally used for? Where might FOP need them?
Thanks ahead and Merry Christmas to you all.
