Goal

Does one still need PASTA or XMLP in R12 for generating PDF with UTF8 characterset?



In 11i there is a restriction, that UTF8 special characters could not be generated in PDF output.
PASTA or XMLP are required for PDF/UTF8 output in 11i.

There were notes saying R12 does not have this restriction, as Reports 10 are able to generate PDF output.
