Yes it does. i tried it in playground and it works fine. does it have anything to do with the server? the playground server and the server what i have could be different. I current have Linux.
I also tried adding few font woff and ttf like mentioned here https://forum.jsreport.net/topic/316/pdf-cannot-display-the-correct-charset-even-utf8-was-set-at-html-meta-tag/4 but it didn't help. there are plenty of fonts mentioned here. will it be possible for you to tell me which font exactly i need add if its linux server?
