Greek script in hyperref bookmarks

Postby greybadger » Tue Sep 22, 2009 10:42 am


I am using the hyperref package to add PDF bookmarks to my document. This is working fine, except where there is 'fancy' formatting in chapter / section names. In particular, greek symbols and simple math-mode stuff.

I can modify the bookmark names by hand, following the documentation. However, this states that "bookmarks must be written in PDFEncoding". After lots of searching, I can't find any way to insert unicode charaters a this stage (i.e. escaping them \uxxxx). Does anybody know if / how this is possible?

You have to load the inputenc package with the utf8 option and the hyperref package with the unicode option, then it should work fine.
