Subject [jira] [Commented] (FOR-1232) Forrest might want to consider making Dejavu the default font for PDF generation
Date Sun, 29 Jan 2012 16:29:10 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOR-1232?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13195782#comment-13195782
] 

Karl Wright commented on FOR-1232:
----------------------------------

It turns out that although Dejavu makes great fanfare about it containing CJK characters,
it actually does not at this time.  So this is not a useful exercise right now.

> Forrest's configuration for PDF generation seems to use default fonts that do not have
CJK characters.  The Forrest site describes using the open-source Dejavu font family as a
way of generating such multilingual PDFs.  Since the Dejavu license has been ruled by Apache
Legal as being compatible with the Apache License, it seems like a natural step to generate
PDFs in Forrest using the Dejavu font by default, saving CJK users a significant amount of
work in order to use Forrest.
