Hi,
Is there a spec for how the font.properties file should look like? Fonts can be defined to be ANSI_CHARSET and SYMBOL_CHARSET. Are there a UNICODE_CHARSET as well for unicode fonts.

Regards,
Fredrik Rubensson

I think you want to ask this in the Windows programming section of Experts Exchange, not the Java section.

Sorry for being somewhat unclear. The font.properties file is standard in Java on any platform. It specifies what system fonts should be used for the standard Java fonts like serif sansserif etc. What I need is some spec for the format of that file. It is not really Windows-related although I suspect that different virtual machines handle this differently. Visual Age for Java for example doesn't seem to like Unicode fonts at all.

The format and use of this file is described in:

http://www.javasoft.com:81/products/jdk/1.1/docs/guide/intl/fontprop.html

which gives examples on adding Asian fonts to JDK 1.1. Note that there is an option for specifying whether a font is directly accesible via Unicode.
