I have a little question about embedding ttf fonts into a pdf.
We are using the RenderX.Net version 3.8.3 server 

I have added the Morningstar 1 Light font, I want to include in my pdf, to 
the  fonts.xml in the /etc directory.
The font is in my c:\windows\fonts directory but also in the /afm 
directory of the RenderX installed directory

The declaration in mij fonts.xml is as follow:
<font name="Morningstar 1 Light" embed="true" ttf="Tt0296m_.ttf" subset="
false"><alias name="MorningStar"/></font>

Generating the pdf with the java version of RenderX 3.7.7 gives no problem 
en show the Morningstar logo and some (red) stars.
Generating the pdf with the .Net server version 3.8.3 shows the error 
"There was a problem reading the document (135)"
when opening the document with adobePDF, because the fund is not embedded.

I created a zip with an example and the results included the fonts.xml, 
the ttf font, the fo file and the result pdf's
You can download it form:       http://www.irisresearch.nl/xep.zip

Can you please tell me what I do wrong?

Hope to hear soon.

Kind regards,
