RE: [XSL-FO] complex character support

1. Having found the text Xml2PDF trying to use one of the 14 default fonts.
2. If it is not possible (eg. non-standard font-family specified) it invokes
the font selection strategy algorithm.
3. Based on the font related properties specified in the source XSL-FO font
selection strategy selects the most appropriate to the requirements system
font (either OpenType or TrueType).
4. If the required font is not installed in the system character sets
analyzer starts. It is trying to find suitable font both to the font
properties and to the character set used in the text. The goal is to display
as much characters as possible using the right font style.
I can't but mention that the font selection is configurable and unnneded
steps may be skipped.
Thus the only requirement to handle complex characters within Altsoft
Xml2PDF is to use uinicode within the source file and to have at least one
font with required characters defined installed in the system.
