Topic: special character not recognized when cut+pasting from PDF

a customer has hundreds of PDFs from hotel and travel catalogues, and they cut and paste parts of the price data tables from the PDF into a web interface for an online application.
Some of the special characters don't translate well (but we could handle that by adding some filter into the web editor) - however, a difficult problem is a EURO character (€) showing up in the PDF text which is translated into a "5" when pasting the text into any other program. Even Acrobat itself displays the character as a "5" (when marking it and right-clicking, it offers "contextual web search for 5"). What can I do? I have no idea how to solve this problem.
