I am also interested in UTF-8 support PDFlib Lite since I need to write Cyrillic text into a PDF.

Any suggestions please?

For Cyrillic - have you tried FPDF?


I haven't tried it with Cyrillic, but I think it should work.

For Persian, does the PDF_load_font() function help in any way?

Many thanks for that - I will have a look at FPDF
