About configuring fonts
Actuate Information Console and iServer support rendering BIRT reports in different formats such as PDF, Microsoft Word, Postscript, and PowerPoint. The processes that do the conversion use the fonts installed on your system to display the report characters.
BIRT uses a flexible mechanism that supports configuring font usage and substitution. This mechanism uses font configuration files for different purposes that control different parts of the rendering process. The configuration files can configure the fonts used in specific operating systems, for rendering to specific formats, in specific locales only, or combinations of these parameters.
The plug-in folder, org.eclipse.birt.report.engine.fonts, contains the font configuration files. Table 28-1 shows the location of this folder in the supported BIRT environments.
