what is the proper way to write Czech accented characters?

I tried
canvas,setfont( "Helvetica", 12 )
canvas.writestring( X, Y, "=EC=B9=E8=F8=BE=FD=E1=ED=E1=E9" )

but it outputs garbage instead of Czech accented characters.

Helvetica is a standard font that comes with Acrobat Reader, I presume.=20
This problem appears on Czech MS Windows which contain Czech fonts.
