Use FileMerge to diff PDF files
Authored by: unforeseen:X11 on Dec 01, '09 11:01:45AM
As mentioned in the other hint - FileMerge does not require MacRoman, it can handle a broad variety of file encodings. Not so however if the file encoding attribute of the file is not correctly set, which appears to be the problem here.
Here's how you can change the file encoding attribute to be correct:
xattr -w com.apple.TextEncoding 'UTF-8;134217984' filename
(Boldly taken from here.)

this is not the sig you`re looking for.
