You can't. The bookmark pane is drawn using whatever font(s)
are necessary to render the text - actual choice is up to Acrobat.

Sounds like whatever tool you used to generate the document
didn't properly encode the bookmark text, since bookmarks can be in
Unicode (since Acrobat 4, PDF 1.3).

What OS are you using??

That's true in many places, but Acrobat is pretty good about it.

I disagree. As long as you use the right tools, it's no big
deal. In fact, with Acrobat 5 running on the correct OS's (like say
Win2K), you can even go back in and reenter the Unicode text yourself.
