I've just downloaded XEP. I wanted to do something in Hebrew
(Right-to-left) and I have a file in Unicode (UTF-8) and using TrueType
fonts. I added my font to fonts.xml and it creates a pdf, but when I try to
open the file I get the following message:

There was an error processing a page. There was a problem reading this
document (110).

I tried it without adding my font to fonts.xml and it created a pdf using
Helvetica and every character that happened to be in the Helvetica font,
showed up, otherwise a blank page. But it opened in Acrobat Reader.

I tried saving the font as Type 1, updated fonts.xml and have the same
message from Acrobat Reader.

I tried another file using Syriac (also right-to-left script) and got the
same message.

Any ideas?

So does XEP support Unicode TrueType fonts?

Does XEP support RTL scripts?
