PDFBox is low level. So a method that would split a string and then change fonts when needed
doesn't exist. But it sounds like a good idea to add it as an example.

I don't know when or if I'll do that, but the code isn't difficult - just try to encode each
character, and when the exception is thrown, try the next font in the list. Collect as much
as possible and then output, then work on the rest.

> Hi,
> how is it possible to create a fallback for languages that aren’t supported by the
used PDFont by using a font stack similar to this: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif
>  
> I want to render normal latin characters and chinese, japanese and other asian characters.
> Is there an open soure font which contains all these characters like the arial-unicode-ms?
> Regards
> Jürgen
