Dompdf with special characters (UTF-8)

I’m not really into php, but sometime you just have no other option. And you know: If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Recently I have been struggling for few hours how to generate pdf from html, that looks like original page and show proper characters. I my case I had problem to print czech chars like ěščřžýáíé. 

First I found recommendation to use Sans Deja Vu font family, which looks like s*it.

Than I finaly found not outdated howto on official github page. In short:

    1. Download and install Dompdf
    2. Download dompdf-utils (don’t know why its not part of Dompdf anymore ?!) and copy laod_font.php in you dompdf folder
    3. And finally!
php laod_font.php Arial /path/to/arial.ttf

Now you should have you font installed and you can use it in you php script like:

Uff.. Why do I feel like this?
Hmm, php is not my cup of tea.
