Dear all.

This is probably more PDF then R issue but anyway, maybe 
somebody can help me.

I try to persuade pdf device to use eastern european (Czech) 
encoding but I was not successful yet. Working on W 2000, R 
1.9.0, lattice plots.

pdf("redprov.pdf", width = 5, height = 5, bg="white", 
family="Times", encoding="WinAnsi")

The characters are OK when using other devices (screen, png, ...) 
but in case of pdf, some characters are not correctly shown nor 

After reading help pages and some archives I understand I shall 
change encoding and/or font but after I used several combinations 
without making any progress I gave up. Shall I install some other 
encoding and/or fonts?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Best regards
