      Description

      PDF Citation Coverpage is part of 5.0, but is severly limited in that it's only able to insert metadata into the citation page encoded in ISO-8859-1. This seems to be the only encoding supported by the font used by PDFbox.

      To fix this, we need to use a different font, like Doulos SIL. Unfortunately, the latest stable PDFbox version 1.8.7 we use does not support changing fonts. PDFbox version 2.0 should support this, therefore we should upgrade as soon as practical.
