Missing \{unicode-text} macro

This is another User Macro that is only used on the Language Analysis page. It sets the font
in the PDF export to a unicode font to properly render some of the more complex language examples
on that page. At LucidWorks, our PDF font is Verdana, which does not properly render Arabic,
Chinese, Japanese, Hindi, Persian and Thai. This macro sets a CSS class for those snippets
of text that didn't render right, and the CSS for the PDF uses that class to set the font
as Arial Unicode. If you use a Unicode font as the body for the whole PDF, you can remove
the references to this macro. If you use an even less-unicode-compatible font than Verdana,
you may need to expand the use of the macro.

This macro had problems in my test conversion to Confluence 4, but I have not yet had a chance
to look at what the problems were or if they are easy to fix.

We discovered this problem while using the commercial PDF tool; however, it is a font problem
so I am assuming it would also appear in Confluence's PDF tool if the font used does not render
those languages properly.
