I am having a web application developed for use in Japan. I am not the programmer but I have the following understanding of a problem we are having and I would appreciate any input or guidance you could give.
The application is being written in perl with unicode format to allow for Japanese character input and storage. The application is being developed to allow our agent in Japan to input orders for a product that will be stored on our USA server. This is no problem.
When an order is input it is necessary from the person in Japan inputting the order to print out a copy of the order and invoices among other things. We want to allow them to print these are pdf documents however
we can at present find no way to pass japanese characters to a program that generates pdf documents "on the fly".
I would appreciate some help.
