Subject Re: True Type Fonts in Fop

They were Type 1 PFM fonts.  They looked fine when they were viewed with
Acrobat on NeoWare Linux.  But they would not print (standard Linux lpr
poscript was used).

I there is precise information then it should be documented.

What type of font were you embedding, was it a windows font. Could it be
possible that the font cannot be used on another platform.
The fonts are embedded, they are not converted.
