 <p>In earlier FOP versions, it was always necessary to create an XML font metrics file
if you wanted to add a custom font. This inconvenient step has been removed and in addition
to that, FOP supports auto-registration of fonts, i.e. FOP can find fonts installed in your
operating system or can scan user-specified directories for fonts. Font registration via XML
font metrics has been deprecated and is not recommended although it is still supported by
the current code.</p>
 <p>More information about fonts can be found at <a href="http://www.adobe.com/devnet/font.html">Adobe
Font Technical Notes</a>.</p>
 <h3 id="opentype-advanced-font-features">OpenType Advanced Font Features</h3>
-<p>OpenType fonts support advanced layout features such as ligatures, small caps, swashes,
alternates, old style figures and more. Please see <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/typography/otspec/TTOCHAP1.htm">Advanced
Typographic Extensions - OpenType Layout</a>. These features are currently missing within
FOP due to the implementation opting to favor for a greater number of formats. </p>
-<p>OpenType as a font format is only supported with PDF 1.6 onwards and is not supported
in Postscript at all. While FOP may support embedding OpenType in the future, the current
method extracts the Compact Font Format (CFF) data, optionally subsets and embeds the result
as a Type1C font allowing it to be used by both Postscript and older PDF versions.</p>

current method extracts the Compact Font Format (CFF) data containing among other things the
character definitions, optionally subsets and embeds the result as a Type1C font. This allows
the font to be used by both Postscript and older PDF versions while losing the features mentioned
above. This is because embedding Open-Type in it's original state is only supported by PDF
1.6 and above.</p>
 <h2 id="bulk">Bulk Font Configuration</h2>
 <p>If you want FOP to use custom fonts, you need to tell it where to find them. This
is done in the configuration file and once per renderer (because each output format is a little
different). For convenience, FOP allows bulk registering of fonts; you can either tell FOP
to find your operating system fonts or you can specify directories that it will search for
support fonts. These fonts will then automatically be registered.</p>
