Topic: rghost and unicode strings

Hello,

i am using rghost to generate PDFs (https://github.com/shairontoledo/rghost/wiki) which is a really great gem. Works all fine, until i hit on a unicode string.

I simply cant get it to print characters like the German Umlauts öäü. Instead i get "fÃOEr" which should be "für". So what is the trick unsing it? Is there anybody who has seen the same issue?

Also I already contacted the plugin/gem author, but he couldn't really help me, too, so i would be really glad if somebody also using this gem could give me the hint to get it work correctly. Please tell me if you need any information.

Cheers, Chris.

Edit 2:

I see this issue on Mac OSX Snow Leopard, Mac OSX Lion and on two Debian Squeeze (Linux) boxes.
