Render tool encounters error where it sees an accent or special character

The Render Tool for creating reports like PDFs etc does not function if any of the table data it receives contains an accent or special character,

 

UTFDataFormatExceptions occur..

 

It also doesn't work if you want filenames output with accents/non-english characters.

 

So forget about reporting in proper representations of German/French/Swedish/Irish/Russian/Chinese/Japanese.

 

This is a bit surprising and needs a note in the render tool documentation also!

 

Can you fix this feature please!

Yes.  Please fix this.  I have the same issue to render PDF file in Chinese.
