Hi Glenn,

Can you suggest an alternative approach please?

I don't like this. It negates any additional processing that may have occurred, such as letter spacing. It requires the IF to repeat part of the layout process. Bad idea.

    With the approach implemented by Simon what gets written to the IF
    file is the original sequence, not the mapped sequence. Then when
    generating PDF from IF the same code that would generate the
    synthesized mappings when generating PDF straight from FO is
    called to recreate the mappings. So I don't think we can say there
    is information about the mappings in the text nodes.

    Ah, I reread your earlier (private) message. I see the problem
    has to do with the use of synthesized PUA mappings. Here, the
    problem really is that the font should always have a CMAP entry
    that maps to every glyph that can be produced by the GSUB
    process. However, not all fonts do this, so in the case in point,
    we have to synthesize some mapping, from which we have to turn to
    PUA assignments. This works when we generate PDF since we
    generate a subset font that contains the synthesized mappings.
    However, I can see that if this is going to IF instead of PDF/PS,
    then we need to find a way to recreate those synthesized mappings.

    I think this information is really font-specific, and should not
    be tied to specific text nodes though. So if Simon's fix uses
    text nodes, then that is probably not the best approach.

        I'm presently at W3C WG meetings this week, but I'll try to
        get on my schedule. I'm not sure what the IF->PS/PDF problem
        is, since the IF->PDF path is clearly working from my tests.

            Can you give your opinion about the approach used by
            Simon? As I mentioned before (in a private message), the
            IF -> PS/PDF route does not work in your original CS
            patch (for the languages that CS targets) due to the
            mapped sequences. Simon's approach works but requires
            keeping the original sequences alongside the mapped ones.
            I think it is a good approach but I would like to know if
            you have a better suggestion before we apply the patch.
