             Summary: Unicode character (left arrow) is not displayed in PDF.It displayed

                 Key: FOP-2670
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOP-2670
             Project: FOP

I am using appache velocity and fop 0.20.5 version.

While generating pdf with FOP, the characters ←, →, ↑ are not corrctly displayed in
the PDF. It get printed as # instead of this  →,→ ↑.   Actually my end users are copy
pasting bulleted list from from Microsoft Word to my velocity form and save. Then they are
expecting to see these special characters characters ←, →, ↑ in the pdf correctly.

In the fop root am using font-family="Times New Roman"

<fo:root font-family="Times Roman" font-size="11pt" xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format">

When I tried to use the font family as "Symbol" it get printed as → correctly
In my case I need to display alpha numeric and unicode characters in the PDF.

So i tried to use  font-family="Times Roman,Symbol", but it did not work, still it shows as

How to support multiple font family in fop. Kindly help me.

Thanks & Regards,
