If the PDF file fails to display all the page’s text, particularly multibyte characters such as Japanese or accented international characters, adjust your CSS to use a font that supports them. For example:

<apex:page showHeader="false" applyBodyTag="false" renderAs="pdf">
        body { font-family: 'Arial Unicode MS'; }

This is a sample page: API version 28.0


“Arial Unicode MS” is the only font supported for extended character sets that include multibyte characters.
