New Revision: 365623

URL: http://svn.apache.org/viewcvs?rev=365623&view=rev
Log:
The font loading code now reads the encoding value from the XML font metrics file so that Type 1 fonts like Symbol and ZapfDingbats can be embedded explicitely (Required by PDF/A).

Note that it is necessary to set the encoding value in the font metrics file manually since it cannot be extracted from the PFM file reliably, i.e. for "Symbol" use "SymbolEncoding" and for "ZapfDingbats" use "ZapfDingbatsEncoding".

I'm unclear about what this means? Is there some obscure attribute which needs to be set in order for it to work? Is it documented somewhere (besides here ;-). If not, an example might be good to add to the FAQ and/or the /fop/fonts.html

BTW, Happy New Year! And thanks for all the great and hard work...
