d150d9c7f6 *Security fix* Configure DocumentBuilderFactory to disallow doctype declaration etc.

FO/PDF output: miscellaneous improvements, including:

header/footer height calculation
Support for table row w:cantsplit property
ParagraphStylesInTableFix enhancements
support FOP config font substitutions
formatting of list item label
generally use per class logging, since this makes it easier to see where the message is generated
Add GlyphCheck; improve support for Arial Unicode MS
For Wingding etc symbols, use hAnsi font ;
PDF events
PDF (non XLST): support nested tables
Workaround for missing space before fo:page-number-citation-last in FOP 1.1 output
FO support for ptab align right
Create a suitable ConversionSectionWrapper, when continuous sectPr encountered, by using header/footer details from the previous sectPr
Where appropriate (ie different page size), insert a page break
Support css line-height
In HTML|FO\PDF output, ensure tblPr is not null - Try to behave gracefully if broken style is encountered (ie missing @w:type or @w:styleId)
w:br in FO output: Handling of vertical space

31m0c0e45d *API change* getContents now throws Docx4JException, instead of returning null in the case of error.


# PDF output; ability to specify font substitutions. See src/samples/_resources
# Avoid using both this and fontMapper.getFontMappings() for the same fonts!

# Defaults to org/docx4j/fonts/microsoft/MicrosoftFonts.xml
# which is contained in the docx4j jar
# If you need to override it in order to provide different file names for
# one or more fonts, start by extracting and editing a copy of the existing file

# In XHTML import, span/@style='background-color:red;' would usually become w:rPr/w:shd/@w:fill="ff0000"
# Set this to true to use w:highlight instead

# Defaults to org/docx4j/jaxb/mc-preprocessor.xslt

# The styles part content used by WordprocessingMLPackage createPackage
# and by getStyleDefinitionsPart(true) where the styles part is null

# Used to try to activate a style (PropertyResolver.activateStyle) which isn't defined in the styles part

# Embedded Fonts - extract to dir
# By default, docx4j will extract embedded fonts to dir
# ~/.docx4all/temporary embedded fonts
# (creating it if necessary).\\temp

# .. placeholder to use instead of "Click here to enter text"
# Defaults to OpenDoPE/placeholder.xml, and if nothing is there,
# will fallback to org/docx4j/model/datastorage/placeholder.xml (which is in the docx4j jar)
# What is new is that you can override that location (ie so you don't have to create an OpenDoPE folder)
