How to create Unicode PDF bookmarks using PDF::API2?


Bruce Horrocks


I'm using PDF::API2 to add bookmarks to an existing PDF. It all works
fine using outline->title($text) to name the bookmark except that any
Unicode in $text is ignored.[1]

What do I need to do to be able to create and display bookmarks that
contain Unicode?

Is there an API2 mailing list or similar that might be a better place to
ask this question?

Thanks in advance.

[1] By ignored I mean, for example, that \x{2192} is displayed as two
characters, presumably both in Latin1 or whatever it is that Reader uses
for bookmarks by default.
