Subject [jira] [Commented] (FOP-2426) Apache FOP- Arabic Letters are not Joined
Date Mon, 10 Nov 2014 23:55:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOP-2426?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14205588#comment-14205588

Glenn Adams commented on FOP-2426:

The problem is that you specified language="en" on page-sequence. The values of the language
and script properties are used to control how font tables are selected. Here, you have basically
said to FOP that it should use the English (en) font tables for all the document content,
including Arabic. Since the English font tables do not cover Arabic joining behavior, you
are getting what you asked for. I would suggest you not specify language, or if you must specify
the top level as "en", then you need to add language="dflt" to each Arabic text block.

Also note that you place writing-mode on the root element. It does not apply to root, but
does apply to page-sequence. See [1] for details.

issue out.
