             Summary: Persian (Farsi) output problem with FOP
                 Key: FOP-2728
             Project: FOP
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: renderer/pdf
    Affects Versions: 2.1
         Environment: Ubuntu 16.04 with xmlto 0.0.28
            Reporter: Navid Emami

We are having trouble making Persian (Farsi) language output with FOP.

We are using the *xmlto* script with the --with-fop option to convert a DocBook 
file to PDF using FOP, which uses XSLT to first make a FO file, and then FOP to 
convert to PDF. We used the --noclean option to capture the intermediate FO XML 

We have verified that the Persian (Farsi) characters are readable in the 
DocBook and FO files. However, when we generate the PDF, the output is not 
readable. There are both _joined_ and _separated_ letters in Persian (Farsi) 
language but the output in PDF format has just separated ones.

Note that there are some font issues in the PDF output as well -- missing 
glyphs -- those show as # characters, and are in the chapter/section headings. 
However, the main body of the text has no # characters, and it still has this 

* contains small.docbook,, small.epub and small.pdf. 
The final output of PDF should be similar to EPUB.
* contains guide.epub and guide.pdf which are the 
complete documents but with wrong rendering of characters in PDF.
