Messed up international characters on PDF transformation

Hey.

I followed the Alfresco tutorial. On the rule that transforms PDFs to text files,  The resultant text file had messed up characters. The original PDF file has Portuguese characters, with accents, cedillas, etc.  Is there anything to fix this?

I can name a space with Portuguese characters and they appear fine. But not on PDF transformations. Any idea?


Update: If i save the file to my desktop, and open it with notepad, the characters appear fine, if i open it with gvim, the characters are messed up…

Can this be related to having the database alfresco in latin1_swedish_ci?
