Using fonts
Java Components supports rendering BIRT reports in different formats such as PDF, Microsoft Word, Postscript, and PowerPoint. The conversion processes use the fonts installed on your system to display the report characters by default.
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, in specific formats, in specific locales, or combinations of these parameters, as described in the next section.
The plug-in folder,, contains the font configuration files. Table 2-1 shows the location of this folder in the supported BIRT environments.
