Hi Victor,

I think that Jeremias covered most of your questions.

This is a related issue to handling the font state.
For embedded fonts it needs to create a font metrics and (at least in
the case of pdf) enable the font to be embedded.

So find out what font metrics are needed by FOP then the code will need
to supply these. Mostly it needs to get the various heights and the
character widths (look in org.apache.fop.layout.FontMetric).
I think the AWTRenderer does this for java fonts already.
