Jose – that's strange, those names aren't special and need to have associated resources.

However, they are fairly standard…so if you must map, then map correctly (not just to Dingbats for all).

Hi list,

There are some PDF's out there (I don't know how common they are, but at least the IRS tax form of 2008 used to have this) that specify fonts like /Helv or /HeBo in their DA streams without specifying the corresponding font in the resources. You will find a proof-of-concept patch, where I refactor the code we use to force ZapDingbats to  render any of the standard 14 fonts given by the short refs. So the first question is, Do we want a feature like this? If so, reviews to make this mergable are most than welcome.
