[jira] Created: (TIKA-469) The Parser is not correctly outputting Arabic text documents

Hudson (Jira)
The Parser is not correctly outputting Arabic text documents
------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: TIKA-469
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-469
             Project: Tika
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: parser
    Affects Versions: 0.7
         Environment: Windows XP
            Reporter: Robert Cullen


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.
