Hi Taylor,

we have been using LaTeX-Dvips-PDF workflow for so many years. And we started using xelatex workflow now, and when we see the PDF we are getting otf symbol(F and Embedding with Identity-H) which is treating as unapproved font based on our validation tools with customer. Hence I have raised this request and would like to confirm whether this is fine for printing/publishing the book which is typesetted in Xelatex workflow.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Team,

Can we use xelatex for typesetting and publishing purpose as there are some issues with xdvipdfmx and we are not having any ps creation option for xelatex.


Could you summarise what the issues with xdvipdfmx are, Varaprasad ?  I use XeTeX (not XeLaTeX, for reasons into which we need not go here) for typesetting and publishing purposes [1] and experience no problems at all.
