Description Peter Schäfer 2004-02-20 12:30:55 UTC
Reading fonts/BERLIN.TTF...

Number of glyphs in font: 119
Unicode cmap table not present
java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException: Index: 0, Size: 0

I found that the TrueType file contains a "cmap" table with platformID=3 and
encodingId=0 (Windows Symbol encoding, or whatever).

TTFReader expects encodingId = 1. However, the table contains readable data in
the correct format (format 4). After patching TTFFile.java, it created a
perfectly valid metrics file.

I might suggest that you apply this patch to org.apache.fop.fonts.TTFFile, line 185:

   if (cmap_pid == 3 && (cmap_eid == 1 || cmap_eid == 0))
