Sorry, it didn't work out for me (I didn't expect it either). When defining the charset as
ISO-8859-10 (the relevant in my case), I got the following answer from Cocoon:

Internal Server Error
Message: null
Description: No details available.
Sender: org.apache.cocoon.servlet.CocoonServlet
Source: Cocoon Servlet
Request URI
  Invalid encoding name "ISO-8859-10".

Short background: I'm using Forrest to publish information about several S�mi languages,
also _in_ S�mi. The S�mi languages has been long struggling with encoding issues, with
at least two different ISO standards (latin4/8895-4 & latin6/8859-10), several private
standards, and very little interchangeability between them. The private standards have dominated,
and the result is the above: the official standard isn't even recognised.

The only really working solution is Unicode, hence my requirement of UTF-8 working in pdf
output. Bitstream Vera is no good to me, since it does not contain all the S�mi characters.
But if someone can make UTF-8 work in pdf using Bitstream Vera, I'm positive I can add the
required fonts myself.

As an alternative to Bitstream Vera, there is also the Free Font initiative <>,
with a license that should be ok.

I really hope this can be fixed for the 0.6 release.

When you transform a document with other characters than latin to PDF, in spite of the unicode(UTF-8)
of the original file all characters get broken and isn't readable. please, does anyone have
a simple solution for this?
