Hi All,

I am trying to generate PDFA-1b document with FOP by feeding an xml and xsl file as input. When i run,  the document gets generated successfully in PDFA mode. But when the content of the xsl file exceeds one page(more than one apge sequence), the processor throws PDFConformanceException saying "For PDF/A-1b, all fonts, even the base 14 fonts, have to be embedded! Offending font: Times-Roman". I am also giving the console output below.

INFO: Default page-height set to: 29.7cm

WARNING: Ascender and descender together are larger than the em box. This could lead to a wrong baseline placement in Apache FOP.

INFO: table-layout="fixed" and width="auto", but auto-layout not supported => assuming width="100%"
org.apache.fop.pdf.PDFConformanceException: For PDF/A-1b, all fonts, even the base 14 fonts, have to be embedded! Offending font: Times-Roman


The strange thing is that this problem does not occur if my xsl page content is only in one page. If you guys have any ideas to share, it would be great.

Thanks and regards,
Sivashankar
