Non-ascii characters display correctly in bookmarks but not in "Document information"

Description

I was using an older Lucide so I thought this minor annoyance would have been fixed by now -- it hasn't.

See attached PDF in Lucide (or have a look at the screencap). Lots of national characters display OK in the navigation panel, but the 'doc info' window does a typical codepage mistranslation or whatever (character right above the mouse cursor in the capture should be "ó", not "¾"). QPDFV shows such stuff OK in both places.

I've also attached the .pdfmarks file I use to generate the test file with GhostScript?. It is encoded using codepage Win1252.

please try qpdfview, as i doubt lucide will get any updates anymore.
read my statement at the wiki page.

Yes, unfortunately I saw it later on. A real annoyance, having such important news scattered all around ;)

As I said, qpdfview works, so I guess all of this is kind of moot now.
