It turnes out that the font we use (a type 1 font) doesn't print the character 
to PDF, although it is displayed on screen and printed correctly to our 
PostScript printer. Using a True Type font, the pdf is OK. I don't really 
understand why this happens, probably has to do with FrameMakers character 
mapping, anyway we changed the template now to use True Type fonts in stead of 
Tupe 1.

Have you checked the font embedding settings of your PDF settings/job
Also check for licensing restrictions on the font, and the "do not send
fonts to 'Adobe PDF'" setting in the printing preferences of the PDF
