Well, that is far from completely garbled! To me that looks like it expects
the bookmark to be utf8 encoded, but somehow another encoding crept in.
(Here's what I think happens: The 'Á' uses a character which has the 8th
bit active. In utf8 this means that this and at least the next byte
together encode one character. I guess this character is chosen then, but
-- as your font does not support that particular character -- replaced by
the hyphen in the display.)

So it is still a problem of encoding. Perhaps someone else can help you get
it all right...

Hope that helps,
