what do you mean exactly?

Lily on mingw uses gs for loading the font; depending on the original
font, the PDF will contain TTF or Type1 fonts.

This is true for Latin-1 characters. But yesterday I found that with
Latin-2 (and I suppose other non-Latin-1) the TrueType version of the
character is substituted with a Type3 version. Now double-checked it,
and it seems more probable now that they are not Type3 fonts, but the
outline (pure lineart) version of the characters. That makes these
characters look different from the others.

My previous attachment didn't get to the list. So I copy it. (UTF-8 email)

We need the PDF to understand what you're saying. It might be that "o is in the times font, but ~o is not. Then Pango substitutes a font that does have ~o ,which might look odd.
