-----------------------------------------------------------

On line 40 of mkebooks.sh we differentiate between LTR and RTL languages with 
separate XSL files. We tried to use default font settings at first and that 
didn't work either.

> 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 file.
> 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 problem.
> *Attachments:*
> * sample-output.zip contains small.docbook, small.fo, small.epub and 
> small.pdf. The final output of PDF should be similar to EPUB.
> * sample-output-full.zip contains guide.epub and guide.pdf which are the 
> complete documents but with wrong rendering of characters in PDF.
