hi Lars,

I would like to bring up to one suggestion that receiving from Jason is
using "each font file for each/group of locale(s)". For example, with the
Deja Vu font so it is a good candidate for Vietnamese but not for Hindi. I
thought that it's not a problem if we would check the locale before printing
a file such PDF in this case. And adding several fonts which will do not
make our system being a bit of messy.

Any suggestion for all ?

God Helse !

Hi Hieu, I think this makes sense. Feel free to come up with a patch for a clean solution to this. Also investigate the font license.
