> I am using appache velocity and fop 0.20.5 version.
> While generating pdf with FOP, the characters ←, →, ↑ are not corrctly 
> displayed in the PDF. It get printed as # instead of this  →,→ ↑.   Actually 
> my end users are copy pasting bulleted list from from Microsoft Word to my

> characters characters ←, →, ↑ in the pdf correctly.
> In the fop root am using font-family="Times New Roman"
