Subject RE: Displaying characters in PDF

If the standard fonts of FOP (Helvetica, Times, Courier, Symbol and ZapfDingbats) contains
the character, then you do not use additional fonts.

FOP use unicode. So you must insert the unicode value (code point) of the character in your
fo file. If you mean with slanted apostrophe the character with the adobe font name quoteright
the code point is 2019. This is a hexadezimal value. Using the iso-8859-1 encoding you have
to insert the numeric character reference in your fo file, for example:

<fo:block font-family="Helvetica">&#x2018;text&#x2019;</fo:block>

To find the code point of a character of the Helvetica font, you can search the adobe font
name of the character in chapter C.1 of the pdf reference manual http://partners.adobe.com/asn/developer/acrosdk/DOCS/pdfspec.pdf
and then use the adobe glyph list http://partners.adobe.com/asn/developer/type/glyphlist.txt
