Cannot read Unicode from html blog - Adobe Acrobat Macintosh

With Acrobat 7.0.8 I tried to create a PDF from <http://ardentagnostic.blogspot.com/2006/09/bad-guys-are-also-good-guys-but.html> Problem 1: The Arabic, Georgian and Cambodian texts are displayed as black circles in the pdf. Problem 2: The Russian text is displayed with double width. Each character should be about half as wide as it is in the pdf. Problem 3: The text is centered in the pdf, but it is left alligned in the html. Does anyone know how to fix any of these problems? Thanks Magnus...

    I would not count on successfully getting non-Latin encodings from HTML. There are too many variables operating here: (1) How was the text encoded in the HTML? (2) What operating system are you viewing it in? (3) What browser are you using? (4) How are you creating the PDF file? I suspect that any or all of these would be variables in how the PDF was created.

    1) The text is utf8. (No other encoding except unicode handles all these scripts on the same page.)

    2) MacOS X 10.4.7

    3) and 4) Acrobat 7.0.8. I use File > Create PDF... > From Web Page.

    I tried printing the page directly to PDF from Safari, and then it worked. However, then I have to open it in Acrobat afterwards to make adjustments, and that seems to be an unnecessary detour.

    Sadly, Create PDF > From Web Page is getting a bit long in the tooth. There are many things which don't get converted well using that route.

    Only Latin and Japanese are supported that way.
