Hi Adam,
Thanx.
I try following code and it works fine for me.I test it only on linux
though.

enc = Iconv.new('Windows-1252', 'UTF-8')

pdf.select_font("Helvetica")

@data=enc.iconv("Persönlicher LS Vorhunden")

table.data = [
    {"name" => @data, "race" => " "}
    ]

then it display "Persönlicher LS Vorhunden" correctly.

You might wanna change "Vorhunden" to "vorhanden" to make it German.
