I have a mapfile, with some layers, with labels. I wish to use two
differents fonts, "arial" and "times". I have the two fonts as tff.
All work fine when I use shp2img utility program for make PNG files.
But, when I change output format to PDF, the text that must be in
times font, appears in other font (a Sans variant). I've opened the
PDF in Acroread and Inkscape, with same results.
Mapserver 5.2.1 from sources
"Sans" is nice font, and I happy with the map produced, but I wish to
know what happens. (I need "PDF files", and not "PNG files", because
the final maps are hardcopy maps).
Thanks for any advice.
