The Character Definition section in the PDT file fails to map the EBCDIC 0xB5 character to a new value.
The Host Code Page (037) converts EBCDIC 0xB5 to ASCII 0xA7 (ASCII section symbol character). The PDF operation code mapping table incorrectly links Section_Symbol with 0xFE. Consequently, 0xB5, after being converted to 0xA7, has no matching entry in the PDT file.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SNA Server versions 3.0 and 3.0 Service Pack 1 (SP1). This problem was corrected in the latest SNA Server version 3.0 U.S. Service Pack. For information on obtaining this Service Pack, query on the following word in the Microsoft Knowledge Base (without the spaces):

With the fix applied, the PDF operation code for SECTION_SYMBOL is changed so that it links correctly to ASCII 0xA7.
