    Hi,

    Am using htmldoc to turn webpages into pdf files. When using the gui
    application the pdf file turns out great. However, when using perl to
    call the program the pdf apostraphes, quotations get turned into
    symbols (apostraphes get turned into a-hat). Obviously its an encoding
    issue but I've used various methods like setting the character set
    like cpan says, uri::escape and even tried substituting the character
    for the symbol (=~ s/a-hat/'/g) to no avail. Any suggestions?
