Subject Re: foprc: 1: Syntax error: newline unexpected
Date Thu, 19 Apr 2012 21:42:33 GMT
Thank you for your reply. I have tried using some of the trunk 
versions of FOP, but in all cases I get an exception:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: 
        at org.apache.fop.cli.Main.startFOP(Main.java:160)
        at org.apache.fop.cli.Main.main(Main.java:208)

Currently I think I'm going to give up. I have no problems with the 
arabic text in all the other formats and I'm possibly just going to 
convert the HTML into PDF and then settle for that.
