Convert pdf to mobi

Hello from Greece.I want to report a problem with the conversion of PDF files to MOBI in Greek language with calibre.It seems like all the letters who have punctuation marks after the coversion are not recognized.For example the word ''Αθήνα'' after the conversion is '' Αθ?να''.Please try to find a solusion to this problem.I' m sure that a lot of people will appreciate it and will support the calibre programm.

Ask in the Calibre forum but it will most likely be a Unicode problem. You could put a line like this between the html head tags (with whatever you need for Greek if it isn't UTF-8)

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

The best results I've had are with a program called PDFtoEpub and Calibre to go from Epub to Mobi.

Using Acrobat Adobe Professional to export the pdf to html+css, then convert html to mobi by Calibre.This is a nearly perfect method.
