I am really only writing to refer you to the Stupid Disclaimers
page <URL: http://www.goldmark.org/jeff/stupid-disclaimers/ >,
as you changed 'are' to 'r' to save two 7-bit bytes!

The short answer is that this is a java problem.

I hope that FOP will not move away from 100% pure java
without very good reason. If adding the requested
encoding is machine/OS specific then should we encapsulate
this issue by deriving from String?

Either way, any change should be fully consistent
with FOPs internationalisation mechansims.

I would guess that the medium length answer is yes,
all of them & you might be better catching the
exception at an appropriate point and reporting it.

If you are not familar with encoding in java, then
you might want to look here

where encoding is mentioned in passing.
