# Re: Wingdings windows font not well rendered in pdf

```Hi,
```
```
The characters map in Wingdings is not a standard thing:
"&#x28;&#xFE;&#xFD;&#xFC;" are Unicode for "(þýü"

Regarding what is output in the PDF produced with Word:
```
the sequence you expect is "&#xF028;&#xF0FE;&#xF0FD;&#xF0FC;", witch is located in [private use character] Unicode page: IOW, this is clearly not a standard set of characters.
```
```
You may use this sequence only with the Windings font, but this will give unpredictable results with other fonts.

```Hi,
I use Fop last trunk with this fop.config :
<fop version="2.0">
<renderers>
<renderer mime="application/pdf">
<filterList>
<value>null</value>
</filterList>
<fonts>
<!-- Wingdings -->
<font embed-url="file:C:/Windows/Fonts/Wingding.ttf">
<font-triplet name="Wingdings" style="normal" weight="normal"/>
</font>
</fonts>
</renderer>
</renderers>
</fop>
and this fo :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<fo:root xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format"; >
<fo:layout-master-set>
<fo:simple-page-master master-name="section1" page-width="8.26in"

<fo:inline font-size="12pt" font-family="Wingdings">&#xFC;</fo:inline>
</fo:block>
</fo:flow></fo:page-sequence></fo:root>
the result is the pdf attached file : Wingdings_Fop.pdf
<fop version="2.0">
<renderers>
<renderer mime="application/pdf">
<filterList>
<value>null</value>
</filterList>
<fonts>
<directory>file:C:/MyFontsForFop</directory>
<auto-detect/>
</fonts>
</renderer>
</renderers>
</fop>
I delete .fop\fop-fonts.cache
and I put wingding.ttf in C:/MyFontsForFop
Same result.
Please, could you tell me what is wrong ?
