When converting Documerge metacode output produced on z/OS into a FAP\Section using the MRG2FAP utility on Windows, an error is generated stating that there is an error in the metacode font list. The process fails and the FAP is not created.

ERROR
-----------------------
* UTLDefErrorExit
* ..\C\xerldmet.c
12,4,0,26713 Error in metacode font list.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced with the following steps:
1. In a command prompt, run: mrg2fapw /I=metacodetest /X=metacode.fxr /T=MET /P=metacode_PrtType /INI=fsisys.ini

(where 'metacodetest' is the metacode print stream produced by Documerge on z/OS and downloaded to a Windows PC, metacode.fxr is the font cross reference file containing the metacode font definitions and metacode_PrtType is the name of the metacode PrtType defined in the fsisys.ini)
