with alpha.10008988, and same code as in other thread modified to read:

#version 3.8;
text { ttf "arialbd.ttf" cmap { 1,0 charset utf8 S }

I get the following error:

File 'pav-patt.pov' line 61: Parse Warning: Text primitive 'cmap' extension is
 experimental and may be subject to future changes.
File 'pav-patt.pov' line 61: Parse Error: Expected 'numeric expression', utf8
 found instead
Fatal error in parser: Cannot parse input.
Render failed

same for 'ascii'.

regards, jr.
