Subject RE: Problems since upgrading,
Date Fri, 03 Jun 2011 10:10:34 GMT
The problem is that the Designers specify it must be HEAVY not BOLD and they
have no understanding of the numeric weights.


The designers use light, normal, bold, heavy and black 


The current FOP only supports normal and bold. 


I guess I will need to make sure that the fop I use is modded to support the
black and heavy as well as light.



Kindest regards

heavy is not a standard keyword.

If you select the wrong value for the fonts you have loaded it should log a
warning for font replacement.

Keywords translate to specific numbers.

You would want to use the numbers instead of the words to be sure it's
always correct.

They might think light is 200 but your light font has a weight of 100, or
normal 300 / 400 etc.


Standard keywords are normal (400) and bold (700), and lighter / bolder
(relative to parent).

Subject: Problems since upgrading,

Since upgrading the fop I use from 0.23 to 1.0 I am now getting problems 

One of which is that the font designations I used to use are now no longer
possible, and was wondering why this has seemingly changed, and is there
plans to support the method I am used to using?


Before <fo:block font-family="Frutiger" font-style="normal"


Now apparently I need to do weight as a number 700=bold etc


Kindest regards
