When it is working in one case inside Forrest but not another? I doubt
it. That rather sounds like an integration problem (and I'm no Cocoon
expert). I don't know what the difference is between the two cases and
how the JVM gets the memory settings for them (I assume we're talking
about an OutOfMemoryError). What you'll get from FOP support is
questions like: does it work from the command-line? Generally, FOP can
deal with Japanese characters (left-to-right only).

At any rate, loading TrueType font currently takes a lot of memory (i.e.
it's programmed rather inefficiently). I'm sure that can be improved but
so far nobody cared enough to do the work.

Sorry, but I don't have any good suggestions other than (somehow) making
sure the JVM has enough memory.
