Thanks for the info. The problem is that the PDF toolkit we are using (reportlab.org) does not support ligatures. I need to check how ligature handling could be supported by reportlab. I expect this to be rather hard, therefore a solution will take a while. But I'll try to resolve this since other languages are also affected.
