in reply to PDF::Template and character encodings

qwurx [shmem] ~ > xlsfonts | grep -i helvetica | grep 8859 -adobe-helvetica-bold-o-normal--10-100-75-75-p-60-iso8859-1 -adobe-helvetica-bold-o-normal--10-100-75-75-p-60-iso8859-15 -adobe-helvetica-bold-o-normal--10-100-75-75-p-60-iso8859-2 ...

Did you try with iso8859-1?

--shmem

_($_=" "x(1<<5)."?\n".q·/)Oo.  G°\        /
                              /\_¯/(q    /
----------------------------  \__(m.====·.(_("always off the crowd"))."·
");sub _{s./.($e="'Itrs `mnsgdq Gdbj O`qkdq")=~y/"-y/#-z/;$e.e && print}

    i just did, and not only did that setting mangle the PDF output, it didn't address the root problem ... :-\
      That might actually be a sign of progress. Is the PDF_findfont error still thrown? If it isnt, if it's different, there might be something wrong with your input files.

      Do you mind posting a condensed example showing the problem? It's far easier to help if there's something to see, and not being forced at stabbing blindfolded into the fog (guessing wildly, that is).

      --shmem

      _($_=" "x(1<<5)."?\n".q·/)Oo.  G°\        /
                                    /\_¯/(q    /
      ----------------------------  \__(m.====·.(_("always off the crowd"))."·
      ");sub _{s./.($e="'Itrs `mnsgdq Gdbj O`qkdq")=~y/"-y/#-z/;$e.e && print}
        I've updated the original node with a trimmed-down xml template. Essentially,  <VAR NAME='LAST_NAME'> is the problem; it contains the (misrendered) accented character.

        Changing the encoding to iso8859-1 *does* fix the PDF_findfont error, but it doesn't fix the problem with the accented characters.
