What font are you applying to the field?  If you want Unicode, you need to use 
a font that supports Unicode and is embedded appropriately.

Subject: [Podofo-users] Unicode in form fields

Hi all,

when i write unicode strings into form fields (using podofo) only the Latin 
letters are shown,
Chinese and Cyrillic remain invisible when I look at it in a linux environment 
xpdf or evince. (The font is Arial, installed via the mscorefonts package.) 
it works fine with Adobe Reader in a windows environment. I found out, that
none of the base 14 fonts supports non Latin letters –  what’s the trick here? 
A PDF is able to
show Chinese or any other letters in a linux environment, but how can I get 
that to work with
form fields?
