I have been trying to embed Asian font while genrating PDF using FOP. I am not able to get a break through in this. I need a help as to how to configure the whole thing like-
1) Where to keep my metric file,
2) i have created a fop.xconf file which has the following data
<renderer mime="application/pdf">

<font-triplet name="arialuni" style="normal" weight="normal"/>


3) the arialuni.ttf font is placed in my directory D:/HEAD/applications/promo/font/
and the metric file is placed in D:/HEAD/applications/promo/config/

4) In my java code i have the following code
FopFactory fopFactory = FopFactory.newInstance();
FOUserAgent userAgent = fopFactory.newFOUserAgent();
File userConfigXml = new File("D:/HEAD/applications/proj/config/fop.xconf");


TransformerFactory transformerFactory = TransformerFactory.newInstance();
File copyrightFile = new File(fileUpLoadTempDir + copyrightPdfFileName);
outputStream = new FileOutputStream(copyrightFile);
outputStream = new BufferedOutputStream(outputStream);
Fop fop = fopFactory.newFop(MimeConstants.MIME_PDF, userAgent, outputStream);
Transformer transformer = transformerFactory.newTransformer(new StreamSource(xslSource));
Source src = new DOMSource(copyrightDom);
Result res = new SAXResult(fop.getDefaultHandler());
transformer.transform(src, res);

This is all i have done till now. I am trying to call the fop.xconf file from my java code.
Still i am getting # for the Asian Character.
Definitly i am missing somethign or the whole process should not be done this way.
Please some one help me out to resolve this.
