Where to retrieve PDF font attributes such as stemv or widths
Posted on 2009-02-17
I am writing an app on an ISeries (non-pc) platform that creates PDF files. I need to be able to take the font name specified on the ISeries (Times, Courier, etc.) and build a font object in the PDF file. My trouble is that some attributes (stemv, widths, etc.) required by PDF are non-existent on the source system. Since my expected consumers of these PDF files are Windows machines, I would like to specify windows values. I have found and looked windows fonts (ttf, etc) but I am getting a little lost in the size of the files.
Can someone direct me to an explanation of how to retrieve PDF font attributes from windows fonts?
