Improve the way FOP handles fonts notably for currency symbols

    Details

      Description

      In the dev ML I suggested we could add
      <auto-detect/>
      in the fonts section of our fop.xconf

      We can do more than that. For instance currently there are no easy ways to render the "new" (since 2010) rupee symbol: ₹.

      One is to use the Google NotoSans font which is Apache licensed

      We need also to

      • Add the rupee symbol (₹) to antisamy-esapi.xml file like we have the euro symbol (€)
      • Use NotoSans as the default FOP font. For that we can put the NotoSans font 4 files in framework/resources/fonts and add <directory>framework/resources/fonts/NotoSansFonts</directory> in our fop.xconf
      • Render ₹ in content/control/fonts.pdf as we do for €. Other symbols could be added later when needed, backed by Google NotoSans font...
