There has been discussion regarding the delegate badges, and ensuring
that names containing diacritics or accented UTF8 characters would be
printed correctly. Furthermore, most printers would expect an EPS or
PDF file. I'm in the process of mocking up a few images for the front
and back of the badges, with an empty area for names.
We can use ImageMagick to draw the delegate names on to the image and
then GhostScript or ImageMagick to generate the desired output format.
This could all be scripted quite easily.
[max@dolphin Desktop] $ convert hedgehog.jpg -font Helvetica \
-fill white -pointsize 20 -gravity center \
-draw "text 0,150 'фхцчшщъыьэю'" hedgehog_annotated.jpg
Just putting this out there in case anyone can say they are aware of a
particular problem with this approach.
Anyone have any objections?
