You didn't mislead me at all, nor did you do anything else wrong. On the contrary, I appreciate your efforts greatly. WRT me overreacting, perhaps I have been misunderstood. The font system works well enough for what FOray needs ATM, but there are a lot of other things that don't. I have rearranged my priorities to try to make sure that I am not a bottleneck on any of this for FOP. I guess this made it higher on my priority list than it was on FOP's, which is pretty stupid. So, having now a better understanding of where everyone else's priorities are, I am glad for the opportunity to adjust mine back to where they really ought to be anyway: FOray. > P.S.: that said, the PDFRenderer should now work fine with > the new font system; converting the SVG library should be > pretty easy; this basically works for the AWT viewer.
