I see there was a recent thread on fop-user called "Mixing Languages
and Unicode". I have the same problem. The PDFs that I create with
FOP could potentially contain any mix of languages and no one font
will support them all.
I do not believe it is practical to try to implement a character-by-
character font selection strategy in XSLT, even if I could figure out
how to do it. Nor do I believe it is practical to try to create some
custom font that supports all languages and embed that in all my PDFs.
So my question is, what would it take to implement support for the
font-selection-strategy property? Has anyone looked at this or taken
a crack at it? Is there any chance that it might be implemented in
the foreseeable future?
