Description Jeff Fearn 2010-01-20 22:00:59 EST
Description of problem:
The Chinese fonts are packaged as TrueType font collections and the automated routine FOP uses can not use ttc fonts.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a chines translation of a book
2. build Chinese PDF

Actual results:
Chinese characters are missing from the generated PDF.

Expected results:
Chinese characters visible in the PDF.

Additional info:
The common content is translated so this is visible even on books with no translation.

It should be possible to use the XML metrics approach used in publican 0.4x but only generate metrics for TTC fonts and leave normal TTF fonts to be generated via the auto-detect routine.
Comment 1 Jeff Fearn 2010-01-24 16:47:01 EST
Added script to generate metrics for known TTC fonts at build time.
