I need so help with my coding. I am trying to convert a HTML with Chinese Character to PDF. I manage to Convert but my chinese characters has disappear

This is my HTML file which i convert to string and i have set font with Arial Unicode MS in the td

string HTMLTemplate = "<
table border=0 cellspacing='0' cellpadding='3'><tr><td style='width:100%;font: 10px/1.5em Verdana, Arial Unicode MS, Helvetica, sans-serif;'>GIGI无合约 F&B‎</td></tr></table>

This is my code

XMLWorkerFontProvider fontProvider = new XMLWorkerFontProvider(XMLWorkerFontProvider.DONTLOOKFORFONTS);

CssAppliers cssAppliers = new CssAppliersImpl(fontProvider);

iTextSharp.text.Document doc = new iTextSharp.text.Document(iTextSharp.text.PageSize.LETTER, 7, 7, 7, 7);

iTextSharp.text.pdf.PdfWriter writer = iTextSharp.text.pdf.PdfWriter.GetInstance(doc, new FileStream(FilePath, FileMode.Create));

iTextSharp.tool.xml.pipeline.html.HtmlPipelineContext htmlContext = new iTextSharp.tool.xml.pipeline.html.HtmlPipelineContext(cssAppliers);


//create a cssresolver to apply css
iTextSharp.tool.xml.pipeline.css.ICSSResolver cssResolver = iTextSharp.tool.xml.XMLWorkerHelper.GetInstance().GetDefaultCssResolver(false);

//Create and attach pipline, without pipline parser will not work on css
iTextSharp.tool.xml.IPipeline pipeline = new iTextSharp.tool.xml.pipeline.css.CssResolverPipeline(cssResolver, new iTextSharp.tool.xml.pipeline.html.HtmlPipeline(htmlContext, new iTextSharp.tool.xml.pipeline.end.PdfWriterPipeline(doc, writer)));

//Create XMLWorker and attach a parser to it
iTextSharp.tool.xml.XMLWorker worker = new iTextSharp.tool.xml.XMLWorker(pipeline, true);
iTextSharp.tool.xml.parser.XMLParser xmlParser = new iTextSharp.tool.xml.parser.XMLParser(worker);

//All is well open documnet and start writing.

xmlParser.Parse(new StringReader(AP_TEMPLATE_HTML));

You are referencing a file from your C drive in which your web app doesn't have access to it. Try moving the file within your Web app root and reference the file from there instead.
