HTML to PDF encodes £ as £

When converting HTML to PDF using the action in Flow any “£” in the input is output as “£” in the result PDF. All other characters are correct as far as I can see. Any ideas?

Example Input HTML (Without the spaces): < body>£< /body>

Output PDF: PDF Test.pdf (6.1 KB)

Hello @jcook,

We’ve changed the conversion logic recently and released the update. Please give it a try and let me know if the issue persists.

Hi, we have this issue again, it was working fine recently but now certain symbols are appearing with extra characters.
i.e.
£ = £
bullet point = •

Hello @jcook,

Could you share your HTML template please? You can share it here or send to [email protected]. I'll try to reproduce it on my side.

Hi @Petr,

The production example is quite large but the issue can be replicated with < body>£< /body>
(Without the spaces). I have just tried again and the issue persists this morning.

Hi @jcook,

I was able to reproduce the issue. We need some time to test it and release the fix. I'll keep you posted.

Hi @jcook,

Please try adding the following line in the HTML head element

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

it should help
