If that works with -Xmx1000m, then go for it. If for some reason you
want to use as few memory as possible, then gradually increase the value
of -Xmx until the OutOfMemoryError disappears. But you probably don’t
want/need to bother so much.

A change was made in FOP 0.95 about the default value of the font-family
property. Until 0.94 that was "sans-serif", in 0.95 it was changed to
"sans-serif,Symbol,ZapfDingats". IIRC the reason was to make the Jeuclid
plug-in work more out of the box, but it has the unfortunate side effect
of issuing the warnings below as soon as you use bold text. There is an
open bug about that:

The workaround is to explicitly define the font-family property, and not
rely on the default value provided by FOP (this is usually done by
setting it on the fo:root or fo:page-sequence elements).

You must have put those font-triplet elements inside a font element,
haven’t you? A font-triplet element is not allowed elsewhere.

FWIW, the gsfonts package contains clones of the Symbol and ZapfDingbats
fonts, they can be found in the /usr/share/fonts/type1/gsfonts/
directory, under the names s050000l.* and d050000l.* (obvious names,
isn’t it ;-) ). But bold/italic versions aren’t available. If you do
something like the following, which I suspect is what you meant with
your font triplets above:
  <font embed-url="s050000l.pfb">
    <font-triplet name="Symbol" style="normal" weight="bold"/>
then you effectively use the normal Symbol as a replacement for the bold
one (the text won’t appear in bold!).

All that said, stick to the advice above and explicitly define the
font-family property instead, and you should get rid of those warnings.
