    Attachment: patch.diff

Attached patch file. I've also created the following temporary branch should 
you want to try it for yourselves:


I will leave this for a couple of days and if no-one has any concerns or 
comments then I'll create a vote to merge it with trunk.

> Soft font support for TrueType fonts in PCL

>             Project: FOP
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: renderer/pcl
>    Affects Versions: trunk
>            Reporter: Robert Meyer
>             Fix For: trunk
>         Attachments: patch.diff
> Currently all fonts (except a limited set of native fonts) are rastered for 
> PCL output. This has the problem of the documents being large in size and 
> should FOP be used in the cloud, rendering to PCL would not be possible as 
> it's using AWT.
> This patch in part resolves this problem by converting TrueType fonts to PCL 
> soft fonts. This allows the size to be much smaller and has been a standard 
> feature since PCL 5.
