Hi Bernard Thanks for that explanation; that makes a lot of sense now.
I think I'm still having a little trouble working out which are the line(s) where you're telling FOP which fonts are available, though. Specifically what I have is a byte-array containing a font's data, and I need to make FOP use that font when it renders an FO (there's no XSL translation - that has already been done). I've been through the docs a number of times now, but I can't see where I can add a font manually to FOP's runtime config, or tell it to refresh it's font cache after providing a directory of fonts, or anything like that. :( Bernmeister wrote: > > > Hi Phill, > The PropertiesManager is a class of mine which basically extends > java.util.Properties and essentially reads/writes a hash table of > key/value pairs.
