Re: Problems with Far East localized typeface on SVG Viewers
- Thanks for the reply.
Okay, I have tested using both Batik and Adobe SVG Viewer. Varied
results but they just can't recognise the localized font name. It
works okay if I manually replace the localized font name with the
english name of the same chinese font.
Unicode? I am using encoding set to UTF-8, is it supported? I am able
to see the localized name within the svg file using Wordpad.
Any idea how I could retrieve the english name from Windows if I know
the localized font name? I am using Visual C++.
Much appreciated. Thanks again!
