Subject RE: Complex Script Support
Date Thu, 19 Aug 2010 21:12:44 GMT
Congratulations!

Are Windows true type fonts supported?

More broadly, is font support limited or can we use the fonts that come with the OS?

We have a Dubai group, I'd like to have try out your complex script support, but I know which
fonts are supported could be an issue.  Looking at their test script I just see the font-family
specified as Arial.

They are currently using FOP with patch: https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/attachment.cgi?id=24934&action=edit,
which uses ICU4J to do Arabic rendering.

Best Regards,
Jonathan Levinson

Subject: Complex Script Support

We are happy to let you know that Complex Script Support for FOP is
under development. Glenn Adams is developing this functionality on
behalf of Basis Technologies.

To make this development efficient and successful, we need your
contribution as well. Does your native language use complex scripts
and perhaps right-to-left writing mode (Arabic, Hebrew, Indic
scripts)? Then install this version of FOP and test it with some of
your XML or FO files. Report your findings on this mailing list.

We will announce updates of this work on this mailing list.

You can download the binary distribution or the fop jar file from
http://people.apache.org/~spepping/.

You can check out the source code from FOP's subversion repository,
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/xmlgraphics/fop/branches/Temp_ComplexScripts.

You can follow the work at FOP's Bugzilla, bug nr. 49687,
https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=49687.

Simon
