I followed the instructions and have been able to create a PDF with utf 
encoded text. So far only with the Rina font. What I don't understand is 
why the UTF-8 decoding is connected to TTF fonts? Could I use UTF-8 with 
the standard fonts (Helvetica, Times-Roman)?

Is there an explanation of this somewhere for download?
