Subject Font Rastering Issue
Date Thu, 02 Aug 2001 15:56:39 GMT
We're using Batik to convert SVG to JPEG, and have noticed 
                 inconsistencies between how SVG Viewer displays the SVG,
and how the 
                 Batik-generated JPEG looks, specifically with regards to
the fonts. I 
                 have included a PDF file that contains images showing the
problem:

                 64.252.15.147/font_problem.pdf

                 First off, it appears as though SVG Viewer accepts font
members,  
                 while Batik accepts only font families. For example,
"Helvetica 
                 Condensed Bold" works as expected in the SVG Viewer, but
Batik does 
                 not. All of this is occuring on the same machine (the
viewing and the 
                 conversion to JPEG from SVG), so it isn't a "font doesn't
exist" 
                 issue.

                 Next, the weighting of a font has no effect, in SVG Viewer,
on the 
                 dimensions of the text. However, when converted to a JPEG,
the text 
                 dimensions are considerably different.

                 Any help would be greatly appreciated, and any general info
on Fonts in SVG (specifically how I can expect things to raster using Batik)
would also be greatly appreciated.
