    In Microsoft Word XP, you can insert symbols not normally associated with ASCII, such as the "less than or equal sign".

    I am converting a document from Word format to PDF, I have tryed to embed all fonts into the PDF document, I've checked Adobe's support and set the TrueType fonts to Native True Type (Type 41) for Windows 2000 as recommended.

    Everytime I convert the document, the "less than or equal" signs come up as black dots like it's not defined by any font that is embedded in the document or the Adobe can recognize.

    How can I get PDFMaker 5.0 to convert the MS symbol or is this even possible?

    Ack, nevermind I figured it out. I was using a "less than or equal" NOT from the "symbol" font that is installed.. once I changed the symbols from my Word document from that unicode value to the decimal value in the font "Symbols", the correct symbol appeared in my conversion....
