Subject: Weird behavior with some TrueType Fonts

PDF::API2 shows some Problem if I load WingDings2 Fonts and try to access the Extended-Latin-1 Characters. For example 0x00f2 (in the TTF) which is normaly "ograve" and in this font a large filled circle should be available with the utf-8 0xc3b4 Character ograve. This works for some other fonts, like tahoma.ttf where it in fact prints the "ograve". In my opinion then, PDF::API2 should print the circle if I try to print the ograve-utf8-character with the WingDings2 Font. Or is there another way to di this?

Unable to reproduce. Wingdings2 is a commercial font that I don't have available to me. Unicode support in PDF::API2 has changed a bit in the past few years, so this may work now, in any case.
