rectangles after converting

After converting a PDF Book, the mobipocket Reader shows the document perfectly, but my cybook doesn't read the "-" signs. It only displays rectangles. I already copied the "Arial" Font used by Mobipocket on the PC but no change.

Any suggestions?

i would recommend using the free DejaVu fonts : http://sourceforge.net/projects/dejavu

they have a very complete character set. when i was having trouble with improperly displayed characters in one of my books this font displayed it perfectly.

This might be because instead of the dash there might be ndash or mdash signs used. Mobipocket is able to display those fine, but if your language on your reader is not set to english, the reader might misinterpret those "exotic" dashes.

no, the cybook's language is on english.
But thank you, it worked with the addidional fonts.
