Charset encoding problem

Post by ciccio » Wed Jul 06, 2005 6:57 pm

Hi all,
we are tring to generate a PDF from a XSL file but we are experiencing some problem with the charset encoding. Quote, trademark, and special characters are not rendered as they are but we can only see the html code.
More over if we try to generate the PDF with character of Czek Republic the rendering is a total mess.

Just to give more information ... we are using Tomcat 4, Oracle 9.2 and JDK 1.4.2.

Please someone can help me ??? :cry:

If you use Apache FOP for generating the PDF result you should set a font that is able to render the special Czech characters and the quotes and trademark character. Please read the article

How to Add a Font to the <oXygen/> Built-in FOP

from the Documentation page:
