Hi, colleagues!

I'm facing a problem that I could not solve up to this moment and would like to refer to your experience. I am creating a simple 1 page PDF file in Illustrator CS4; the file contains of one header and some texts. The problem is that when I save the file as PDF, the default encoding is being set to ANSI and I can not find where I can set it to UTF-8. Guys, if anyone knows how to change the encoding from Illustrator, please give me your help.

Thanks in advance!

If you have the full CS4 Web suite, try using Acrobat Pro to render a pdf from an exported Illustrator document.
