I'm trying to use xml datafiles (.xfdf) to view pdf-files with inserted data from the xfdf file.
Since I live in Norway I have to use the norwegian letters as [æ=ae, ø=oe and å=aa].

Anybody know what I can insert into the xfdf-files that shows these characters in Acrobat?

In advance thank you for your help!

Because XFDF is just XML, you can make use all the Unicode capabilities that are built into XML. Just encode your data as UTF-8, and Acrobat should be able to display these characters correctly.
