Subject Re: Is there a decent way of using different PDF fonts for different parts of a Forrest site?
Date Sun, 29 Jan 2012 16:38:27 GMT
There are so many problems here that I now think the only way to
actually get this to work is to make a copy of Forrest via ant and
modify the Forrest files, also via ant.  I've set this up for the
ManifoldCF site build now and we should be able to work our way
through it a problem at a time, until we get it to work.
