 * The IBM Font Object Content Architecture (FOCA) supports presentation
 * of character shapes by defining their characteristics, which include
 * font description information for identifying the characters, font metric
 * information for positioning the characters, and character shape information
 * for presenting the character images.
 * <br>
 * Presenting a graphic character on a presentation surface requires
 * information on the rotation and position of character on the physical
 * or logical page.
 * <br>
 * This class proivdes font metric information for a particular font
 * as identified by the character set name. This information is obtained
 * directly from the AFP font files which must be installed in the path
 * specified in the afp-fonts xml definition file.
