Subject RE: Unicode and pdf doc
Date Sat, 27 Nov 2004 12:32:27 GMT
   Thanks for the clarification on the differences in versions. Now it is
clear that a different skin will have to made to patch it up as the
document2fo.xsl in versions 0.6 upwards has it  only in: 
\src\core\context\skins\pelt\xslt\fo (Ver 0.6) OR
\main\webapp\skins\pelt\xslt\fo (Ver 0.7)

Would it be useful to the forrest community to allow say sitemap.xmap or to have an xml line to allow selection of  this file
seperately for each project?

What version of Forrest are you using? We have not been placing the 
skins into a seeded site for a long time now.

document2fo.xsl *is* used - that is what creates the fo from which we 
create the PDF output.

The exact location of the xsl you need to edit depends on what version 
of Forrest and which skin you are using. In 0.6 it is in:


in 0.7-dev (which is what you should be using if you are going to fix 
this problem, that way we can apply your fix to Forrest and it will 
still be fixed in the next release):
