Working with non-ASCII Fonts can be a real pain.

Stick to UTF-8, that will make it better for you. UTF-8 is kind of a ASCII-konform encoding for non-ASCII characters.

You can use the class Font[^] for that.

Please also check out some of the following:

- internationalization
- I18n
- non-ASCII encoding

The problem is common, not new.
