Possible this is a problem with the PDF or installed/available fonts?
Reasoning: Tried opening using Tika GUI app and got garbled text. Then I tried selecting all
text from PDF in Adobe Reader and pasting it into Word/Notepad++. This also resulted in what
looks like exactly the same garbled text.
(Environment: Win7, latest tika trunk from svn built on JDK 1.6)

> The parser is not preserving the character encoding when parsing documents in Arabic
UTF-8, specifically with .pdf and .doc.  The resulting character output is undechipherable
or just question-mark symbols.
