Check out this link for how to use unicode with iTextSharp.  Main points to note (and that may not be clear from that post) are: the BaseFont must be initialized with the second parameter set to BaseFont.IDENTITY_H and the font that you use must support the Unicode characters (Arial Unicode MS is one of them).

To find out whether your current data is correctly read (i.e., the string containing your HTML) you can check it by hovering over while inside a breakpoint. If it is not read on correctly (the HTML I mean) you should check whether you read the file in as Unicode.
