Interface FontMapper

All Known Implementing Classes:
AsianFontMapper, DefaultFontMapper

public interface FontMapper

A FontMapper implementation handles mappings between AWT Fonts and PDF fonts. An interface is used instead of a fixed class because there isn't an exact correlation between the font types, so each application is free to define a mapping which is appropriate for it.
