Subject Re: Batik font support newbie question
Date Wed, 03 Mar 2004 14:18:09 GMT
Hi Ananth,

    Java (and hence Batik) do not support Type 1 fonts it probably
also doesn't support some of the more wacko variants of OpenType.
Basically, the font must be a TrueType font for Java to access
it directly, it is possible that fonts installed on the system (even
Type 1) might be supported.
