this does not work in some UTF-8 languages, I'm asking this for Persian. Letters in this language are in 2 type of connected (attached) and alone, like arabic,
characters are like this : ا ب پ ت س ش ل و د
but they make words that the letters are connected : احسان  =  Ø§ Ø­ س ا Ù†
anyway, letters has 2-3 formats in words.

You can try http://tcpdf.sourceforge.net which is a improvemtn to fpdf with unicode-support, but never tested it with persian. Should have the same interface as ufpdf.
