Appendix D: Character Sets and Encodings

Appendix D. Character Sets and Encodings

This appendix lists the character sets and encodings that are assumed to be predefined in any PDF consumer application. Only simple fonts, encompassing Latin text and some symbols, are described here. See “Predefined CMaps” on page 412 for a list of predefined CMaps for CID-keyed fonts.

Section D.1, “Latin Character Set and Encodings,” describes the entire character set for the Adobe standard Latin-text fonts. This character set is supported by the Times, Helvetica, and Courier font families, which are among the standard 14 predefined fonts (see “Standard Type 1 Fonts” on page 385). For each named character, an octal character code is given in four different encodings: StandardEncoding, MacRomanEncoding, WinAnsiEncoding, and PDFDocEncoding (see Table D.1). Unencoded characters are indicated by a dash (—).
