A set of utility functions to save the fingers of the PDF library users!

Returns either PDFStr($text) or PDFUtf($text), depending on whether $text is already in UTF-8 and whether the $usage permits UTF-8. If UTF-8 is not permitted, "downgrade" will be called on a UTF-8 formatted $text.

$usage is a single character string indicating the use for which $text is to be applied. Some uses permit UTF-8, while others (currently) forbid it:

's'
An ordinary string, where UTF-8 text is permitted.
'n'
A named destination, where UTF-8 text is permitted.
'o'
An outline title, where UTF-8 text is permitted.
'p'
A popup title, where UTF-8 text is permitted.
'm'
metadata, where UTF-8 text is permitted.
'f'
A file path and/or name, where UTF-8 text is currently not permitted.
'u'
A URL, where UTF-8 text is currently not permitted.
'x'
Any other usage where UTF-8 text is not permitted.
