Subject: Mac ttf fonts -- still causing trouble...
for my work I write multilingual texts, mostly in Western languages and Japanese, but sometimes Trad. and Mod. Chinese or Korean is included as well. I write my texts in xml and just started writing style sheets for PDF output. Everything works fine on Mac OS X with oXygen and FOP 0.95 now. I am not a computer specialist, but I hope to explain my problem well:
Some .ttf fonts do not work, these are all fonts that cannot produce metric files with TTFReader (I started with that, although now I do not use them since I realised 0.95 does not need them). The problem is mentioned frequently on this forum a well, a missing cmap table as the terminal says (although it seems that the fonts do have a cmap table).
I could deal with the problem in 2 ways:
- Workaround: Avoid those fonts and use replacement fonts -- which is difficult for few East Asian fonts.
- Solving the problem working on the fonts or FOP/TTFReader -- which is far beyond my level of computer knowledge.
So 2 questions:
1) Are there any Korean or Chinese ttf fonts for Mac that are known to work?
2) This problem occurs in several variations between 2006 and 2008 on this forum, has there been a solution in the meantime?
Thanks for listening,
