           Summary: Fop fails to render non-ascii characters in PDF output
           Product: Fop
           Version: 1.0dev
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: pdf
        AssignedTo: fop-dev@xmlgraphics.apache.org
        ReportedBy: [EMAIL PROTECTED]


Dear developers,

I know the font system is currently undergoing changes. Please excuse this if 
this gets fixed soon.

When rendering a document containing "special" characters to pdf, they get 
shown as # instead of the 
right character.

(fop svn, current checkout)

For a full example, see the attached test file.

Example:
test &#x2211; test

should render: test E test (where E is the sigma character).

On the pdf output I get:
test # test

AWT output works fine.

I don't know if this is specific to a Mac system. I have no user fonts 
installed.

(What it should do is figure out that the standard font does not have the SIGMA 
character and switch to 
the symbol font).

If there is no one working on it and you point me in the right direction I may 
be able to provide a patch.

Max
