Re: Cannot render the ⌥ symbol

Hi,

Maybe you could use "Segoe UI Symbol" as an alternative?
From what we tested, the Segoe UI Symbol font does have bold font weight, so it should work just fine.

Re: Positioning of content in footer in vertical alignment

Hello,

Well, the content of your footer seems to be only the page number.
Do you need some extra space between the black border and the page number?
Then just use:

Code: Select all

@page{
@bottom-right{
content:"\A" counter(page);
font-size: 10pt;
border-top: 1px solid black;
}
}[code]
