font problem

Hi Adepters,

I need help with a font problem. I'm using the font Helvetica Neue Light in a Print Fosi. The problem is that the preview and the resulting PDF doesn't contain the apostrophes and quotation marks that exists in the xml-file.

Other fonts used in the same FOSI shows all characters without problems. I have followed all the steps required to make a specific font work with Epic. My guess is that the problem must be related to the font metric file (tfm) which is needed for Epic to use a certain font in print, but I don't have any good idea of how to troubleshoot. If anyone have experiences from similar problems I would be really glad.

thanks in advance

Jonas

Hi Jonas,

Consider which remap file you specified when running afmtopl.
Both the AFM file and the PL file are ascii files you can view
with any text editor. If you have a freshly generated PL file
made from running makeafm and then afmtopl (versus one that was
made by going "backwards" with tftopl), there should be comments
saying what the name of each character is. Hence it should be
easy to see whether these characters are in their expected
locations. To find out what these locations are, see a PL file
for a font that works. (I think, for example, that a left double
quote should be at position 147, but you'd need to verify that.)
