I think the 1.8 changes to Batik's DefaultFontFamilyResolver solved the issue for me (specifically, it now registers font names as well as font families.)
Thanks Luis.

FOP uses Batik for SVG processing. It used to be that fonts used in SVG would be resolved by Batik/AWT to system fonts. Recent changes to Batik allow fonts used in SVG to be resolved to fonts configured by FOP. You probably can piggyback on top of that.

I'm using iText for PDF generation (hoping to be able to call drawString on its PdfGraphics2D object).
What changes are you referring to?
I'm already using Batik's trunk for the benefit of being able to hook into the font lookup process.
Thanks.

How do you generate your PDFs?

There have been some recent changes to Batik to allow FOP to set the
font used inside the SVGs. Maybe this is relevant for your case.
