Hi, all

I have no problem to get an pdf output using XeTeX and XeLaTeX but, I  
got some errors using XeTeX+ XonTeXt.

After many tests, I think that the error is related with the font 
(including Korean) which I installed privately.
If I use the fonts installed by system, then everything is OK.

1) There is a  white space  instead of figures.
		No error messages but no figures. However, if I changed the font, I  
got the pdf output directly containing figures.

2) font error message:

xetext.xdv -> xetext.pdf
** NOTICE: This document contains a `Preview & Print only' licensed  
font **
** ERROR ** CFF: Invalid character.

Output file removed.
TeXExec | runtime: 5.386493

However, I could get an pdf texts using "xdv2pdf" but still no  
figures. If I changed the font, then I got the pdf output without  

Hence, all the errors are originated from the font. I wonder whether  
it is the problem in my system only or not.

And if you also get the same errors, then is there a

You can download fonts freely from the following address:


In the middle of that page, you can see "Open type Fonts for Mac OS  
X", click "open type font 5" below the "download service". It  
contains 5 fonts, and try one of them.

Thank you for help.
