For Font in E1 BIP Report, review setup in <Document 652457.1> E1: XMLP: Adding a Font to be Used with Embedded Publisher for EnterpriseOne

To configure custom fonts in EnterpriseOne Tools Release 9.1 and above it is no longer enough to just install the font in .../system/resources/truetype. This will cause PDF reports created on the server to not use any custom fonts even though the font file is on the server and it is configured in P98980 (Work with Fonts).

An example is a report using Arial Unicode MS font to display Chinese characters. After upgrading to tools 9.1 the report started using font AngsanaUPC in place of Arial Unicode MS.

Another issue seen with TR 9.1, for an E1 implementation using Japanese.  The PDF is not printing correctly and the text is being overlapped in the report output.  Although the font being used; Arial Unicode MS is a true type font and is entered correctly in P98980, the PDF is not correct.
