Ivan, This type of question is best put to the FOP User < fop-us...@xmlgraphics.apache.org> email list rather than the developer list. In any case, nothing is required of FOP for you to be able to make use of Garamond Pro and other Adobe fonts, though certain advanced typographic features may not be supported. However, if you are not familiar with those advanced features, then that will likely not affect you. For typical western writing systems, you should have no problem with existing off the shelf Truetype and Opentype fonts.
