Your catalog of fonts are in your machine. So create a script to generate the font metric files, edit the userconfig.xml file and then generate an FO document that displays some text in each of the fonts.

Hi all, Is it possible to display *any* locally installed font or are we limited to just a few main ones? As I recall, fop is limited to just four or five main fonts for display in pdf output. Is that correct?
I'm interested in making a catalogue of all locally available fonts. I was thinking, one way might be through xml and fop to pdf. But probably not a good idea, no?
Last time I did it in Flash, but it was awfully complicated and painstaking. I want some way of arranging the fonts together, sans, serif, cursive, etc.
Any help appreciated. -- sc
