As far as I can tell pdf egg itself does not support UTF8 output as it does not generate a unicode character map. You would have to pass in a Latin-1 string. For example you can save your file (which I assume is in UTF-8) as ISO-8859-1 using "M-x set-buffer-file-coding-system iso-latin-1" and then latin-1 characters will appear correctly. This is unsatisfactory but latin-1 is the best you can currently do.

I want to create pdf files that accept characters like "áéíóúç", and I'm using utf8 and pdf eggs. When I create the pdf files following the given examples/test files of pdf egg, requiring and importing utf8 egg, just changing any text to the characters above preceeded by a (->string ...) call, the chars appear as strange pair of characters ("áéÃ-Ã3Ãoç", respectively).

How can I make it work, please?
Thanks in advance.
