[jira] [Commented] (FOP-2728) Persian (Farsi) output problem with FOP

JIRA jira@apache.org

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOP-2728?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16089177#comment-16089177 ]

Jennifer Hodgdon commented on FOP-2728:

OK! I think that did work. Navid: Can you look at the simple-nolang.pdf file that I am about to upload, and verify whether or not it is good, readable Farsi? It looks to me as though the characters are stuck together as they are in the readable ePub, but ... not being conversant in Farsi ... I cannot be sure.

Anyway I will attach the new file simple-nolang.pdf that uses the identical simple.fo file but with the language="fa" attribute on fo:root removed.

>                 Key: FOP-2728
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOP-2728
>             Project: FOP
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: renderer/pdf
>    Affects Versions: 2.1
>         Environment: Ubuntu 16.04 with xmlto 0.0.28
>            Reporter: Navid Emami
>              Labels: drupal
>         Attachments: mkebooks.sh, pdf-farsi.xsl, sample-output-final.zip, sample-output.zip, simple.fo, simple-nolang.pdf, simple.pdf
> We are having trouble making Persian (Farsi) language output with FOP.
> We are using the *xmlto* script with the --with-fop option to convert a DocBook file to PDF using FOP, which uses XSLT to first make a FO file, and then FOP to convert to PDF. We used the --noclean option to capture the intermediate FO XML file.
> We have verified that the Persian (Farsi) characters are readable in the DocBook and FO files. However, when we generate the PDF, the output is not readable. There are both _joined_ and _separated_ letters in Persian (Farsi) language but the output in PDF format has just separated ones.
> Note that there are some font issues in the PDF output as well -- missing glyphs -- those show as # characters, and are in the chapter/section headings. However, the main body of the text has no # characters, and it still has this problem.
> *Attachments:*
> * sample-output.zip contains small.docbook, small.fo, small.epub and small.pdf. The final output of PDF should be similar to EPUB.
> * sample-output-full.zip contains guide.epub and guide.pdf which are the complete documents but with wrong rendering of characters in PDF.
