I just can't seem to figure this out.
I know that PDF doesn't support UTF-8 so I'm trying to use Iconv to convert the string from UTF-8 to MacRoman (or anything that will work). This doesn't seem to be working though. Is there a better/correct way to do this? The string is stored as UTF-8 in MySQL and displays properly on the web (<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>).
The main problem seems to be smart quotes do not come across I get strange symbols, everything else seems to work.
My latest attempt.
def create_pdf # creates a PDF version of an authors listing. Pass a listing object as the methods parameter. AJ
