[Cartoweb-users] encoding in pdfExport

it seems fpdf is a bit limited with "non-standard" characters and need some 
tweaking to reproduce these characters correctly.
there is some infos on the fpdf tutorial 
somehow, simply adding a
 and$pdf->SetFont(''some_font_name','',35);when adding the text block should 
solve the problem
but I havent yet looked exactly where in the plugin this should be done.

I also noticed there is an utf8 extension for fpdf, but I dont know if it 
would be difficult to use it:
