I thought there was an easy answer for this question but I am not sure,
there maybe a bug in RenderX. How are you encoding the character? I
did a quick test just to make sure I would give you the right answer.

What I found is that the UNICODE character entity (&#x212B;) creates the
character when using the <rx:bookmark> construct but not in the body.

However, the binary UNICODE character gets represented in both both fonts,
as does the ASCII character entity (&#197;).

I tried an experiment with 3 character encodings. The input is:


The resulting FO file shows:


In the PDF bookmark all three characters show as but only the &#197
character gets represented in the PDF file.
