I am new to this list, to FOP, and to open-source development. I have been
trying to get up to speed so that I can help on a couple of my personal
"itches". I was going to hold off on offering help / asking questions until
I was farther along in that process, but your question addresses one of
those itches. I noticed in the documentation (and by experience) that only
the base-14 fonts are supported without building metric file information
externally. Also, my perception is that OpenType fonts are not supported. I
would like to look at the feasibility of making arbitrary system fonts
available, not only for FOP, but for embedding (where necessary) in the
output. I don't see this on the list of enhancements. Perhaps your question
was oriented toward getting such a project on the list, or addressing some
design issues that affect this.

My questions (for now) are: 1) This project seems feasible, but am I missing
something? 2) Has anyone already started this? Perhaps you are thinking of
starting into it? If so, I'll be happy to assist (if that is possible), or
to work on something else -- there are plenty of other FOP projects that
interest me.

In short, I wanted to register an interest in this thread and offer to help.
I apologize that I am not yet conversant in the details.
