Subject Re: DO NOT REPLY [Bug 48395] [PATCH] Type1 fonts handling with AdobeStandardCyrillic encoding sheme
Date Wed, 16 Dec 2009 12:29:53 GMT
This patch is not about custom encoding for particular font.

Plese visit Adobe site: 
http://www.adobe.com/devnet/opentype/archives/non_latin.html and pay 
attention on 'Cyrillic Fonts' section.

Here is some quotation:
'The Adobe Standard Cyrillic Encoding is essentially the Windows Cyrillic 
Encoding, plus a few extra characters which are not in standard Windows 
positions - so most users probably will not be able to access them.'

So, I think, that it is not custom encoding. It is a standard encoding, which 
is still missing in FOP.

As far, as I know, the biggest Cyrillc font designer ParaType 
(http://www.paratype.com/), may be others, supply Type1 fonts with this 
encoding, explicitly defined in afm files (EncodingScheme field)
