Hi syncfusion.
Iam using HtmlConverter converting html to pdf. The problem is that when i convert danish text with letters(å ø æ), I get strenge text i the pdf. The question is how to make HtmlConverter understand the danish letters.

Thank you for posting your query to us.

I am afraid that I was not able to reproduce the issue. Please refer to the following steps that I tried to reproduce it.

1. Created HtmlFile which is having danish letter
2. Converted the Html file as PDF

And also I have tried the below speciifed website which contains danish text, Essential PDF generates the document without any issue.


I have created a simple sample to test this issue and it is available in the following link.


Please have a look at the above sample and if still the issue exists, could you please try reproducing it in the above sample or send us the html file so that we could sort out the cause of the issue and provide you a solution?

Hi Suba
you are Absolutely ret. The problem was with the string-html encoding and not with the htmlConverter. Sorry it was my mistake.

however can you answer another question about how to make the htmlConverter works in multi threads asp.net.
avoiding using AspCompat="true" in the aspx page.

Sorry the delay in getting back with you.

We can make use of the HtmlConverter without including AspCompat="true" in the aspx page by using Threading.

Kindly use the below code snippet,

Thread t = new Thread(new ThreadStart(converter));

Please of find the simple sample from the below specified location and let me know if this helps,

Thread t = new Thread(new ThreadStart(fromUrl));

because I have error message
