    Hello Detlef,

    As I can deduce from your message you are generating PostScript with
    XEP and then transform it into the PDF using some third party tool.
    It may happen that this tools is responsible for the problem. What are
    you using for PS to PDF distillation? What version of Acrobat Reader
    are you using?
    Note that bookmarks are produced using PDFDocEncoding and your may not
    translate it properly into the output PDF. Note also that XEP utilize
    it's own font configuration and has nothing to do with Windows

    Best regards,
    Alexander Peshkov

    OD> Hello,

    OD> I have a problem with the bookmarks in spanish PS/PDF files on Windows PCs. I think this problem exists also for another languages.

    OD> For example the Word Index = ═ndice (see Index_es.gif).

    OD> PDF Bookmark:

    OD> ─"ndice
    OD> [/Dest /Index
    OD> /Border [0 0 0 [0]]
    OD> /Title (═ndice)
    OD> /OUT pdfmark

    OD> PDF Content:

    OD> ═ndice

    OD> /Helvetica-Bold.1 20.0 selectfont
    OD> (\004) show
    OD> /Helvetica-Bold 20.0 selectfont
    OD> (ndice) show

    OD> You can see in the content area there are character substitutions. Could I work also with character subtitutions in the bookmark area!?

    OD> On Linux there are no problems. What have I to do under Windows?

    OD> Changing the 'UNICODE_ANNOTATIONS' makes no differnces. Maybe I have to change the entries for [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontSubstitutes] in the Registry!?

    OD> Maybe the solution is quite simple!?
    OD> By the way I am using XEP 3.7.1.
