I can't figure out how to properly show arbitrary Unicode text in a PDF. I am currently trying to use a TrueType font with a ToUnicode stream to map character code (byte) 33 to Unicode 20AC (Euro sign). In theory, I could then say:
/MySpecialFont 12 Tf
(!) Tj % exclamation point is character code 33
And I would get a Euro sign, right? Except it doesn't work, so I must be missing something.
Before this, I tried something with Type0 fonts and CIDFonts and stuff, but that didn't seem to work either.
Thanks in advance!
