I am using FOP for PDF rendering and using Arial.xml and Arialbd.xml (metrics 
file) for embedding the Arial and Arial Bold font.
The FOP generates PDF correctly but the content with embedded font is not

This is a known issue. You can work around it in some cases, depending on the 
glyphs you are using in the Font. If you specify the -enc ansi option when 
generating the metrics files, copy, paste and search operations will work in 
PDF if you are only using characters in a very limited character set; I think 
this is iso-8859-1, but not absolutely certain.

The bfrange-section in the metrics file was filled correctly. Can I use these 
values as a cmap section in the pdf?

Cause: Missing ToUnicode maps.
