Pdf export breaks special characters - in my case for Czech language Answered

The PDF export is a great feature. I experienced a bug in text encoding with Czech language. When special characters like: č ě š č ř ž ý á 
got displayed badly (as few other characters) in the pdf while on the web they look ok. Would be really great to see this fixed since i want to do my Instructables bi-lingual.
this is a link to my instructable that causes problems.


and link to pdf itself: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/34763329/Upload-new-software-to-Trinity-using-Arduino-Jak-n.pdf

i am using chrome on OSX 10.7.5
keep up great work.

and btw. the new file uploader didn`t work to attach the pdf - so i tried the old one and now I don`t see whether the pdf is attached or not - thats why i attached the dropbox link


Thanks for letting us know.

We're moving towards getting our site internationalized and translated into a bunch of languages, an error like this with special characters is likely not confined to just Czech and will be something for us to look into.

When Can I expect to be able to export inscrutables in Hebrew?
