    Generating report using RPE from RSA DM result in garbled
    character if comment contains Japanese surrogate character
    

Problem conclusion

  • The issue regarding the Japanese character reported through
    this APAR is fixed in RRDG 1.2.1 by the upgrading used
    library. To obtain the Unicode characters in the Word or PDF
    outputs a Unicode font needs to be used either by defining
    it in the template or through an external stylesheet (with
    the latter approach being more reusable).
