how to render HTML tags in FDF file?

Apr 16, 2012 3:57 PM

Tags: #fdf #html_characters

We're creating PDF files using FDF format. Unfortunately, when it comes to displaying characters like © (©),  ® (®); and ™ (™) they are simply rendering as © rather than the proper symbol they represent.

 

Is there a way to tell the FDF to render this properly?

    HTML centric jargon, the &[something], is the problem. Each character of a "&[something] has a defined value that maps to Unicode. That is what PDF works with (Ref. ISO 32000-1).

    Try using the actual ANSI number for the characters. Again, PDF is not HTML.

    ANSI 0169 for ©

    ANSI 0174 for ®

    ANSI 0153 for ™

     

    Be well...
