Hi
 
I want to play around with the PDF/A capabilities of FOP but am having
trouble with getting a basic test file working.
 
Is there an example somewhere to demonstrate how this works?
 
I tried using the footnote simple example for testing (using the current
trunk version)
 
 $   fop -fo simple.fo -pdfa1b simple.pdf
 
which returns this error:
 org.apache.fop.pdf.PDFConformanceException: For PDF/A-1b, all fonts,
even the base 14 fonts, have to be embedded! Offending font:
/Helvetica-Bold

I tried to figure out how to embed base-14 fonts for a while but they
seem to be built into the source code so got stuck there.  Should they
be embedded automatically?
 
Any tips would be great!
 
Regards
Pete
