Hi Rob,

Thanks for developing this useful addition to PCL Renderer.

Hi All,

This is a vote to merge the temporary branch for adding PCL soft font support to FOP trunk.

What this allows for are TrueType fonts to be converted into a PCL native font format. This moves FOP away from using AWT and rasterized characters allowing for PCL output to potentially be generated over a cloud, better rendering quality and smaller documents. Other font formats will still be rasterized but TrueType will now default to being converted for PCL output.

If you want to give it a try please do. The branch can be found here:

http://svn.eu.apache.org/repos/asf/xmlgraphics/fop/branches/Temp_PCLSoftFonts <https://svn.eu.apache.org/repos/asf/xmlgraphics/fop/branches/Temp_PCLSoftFonts>

This vote wll last 6 days (as I'm unavailable this weekend) and will conclude next Monday.

Here is my +1.
