Hello there!

I'm trying the following object in fop 0.20.3:

<fo:inline font-style="italic" font-family="Arial, Helvetica, Geneva" font-size="11.0pt">Tuesday, Mar. 5, 2002 12:33</fo:inline>

And got error message:
[ERROR]: unknown font Arial, Helvetica, Geneva,normal,normal so defaulted font to any
[ERROR]: defaulted font to any,normal,normal

Is it a bug/unsupported feature or am I wrong with something here ?

I remember a post which basically said that font lists are a last minute addendum to XSLFO imposed for CSS compatibility. I *hate* CSS for the havoc it wrecked on other otherwise quite sensible standards. The font list attribute introduces another language with a rather nontrivial grammar, which is incidentally incompatible with the expression language used for other properties. The parser in fop/expr doesn't obviously handle it, and i didn't find evidence that the font-family attribute is handled by another parser, the foproperties.xml declares this: <property> <name>font-family</name> <inherited>true</inherited> <datatype>String</datatype> <default>sans-serif</default> </property> So my guess is the feature is not implemented. :-(
