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 <URL: http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/javanp2/chapter/ch11.html >, or <URL: http://users.erols.com/eepeter/chinesecomputing/programming/java.html > <URL: http://java.sun.com/products/javamail/FAQ.html > where encoding is mentioned in passing.
