      Description

      ExtractText (and perhaps also PDFTextStripper) should default to UTF-8, which is what most people expect. There have been two long-standing open issues PDFBOX-755, PDFBOX-970, because of not using having a good default.

      I've escalated this to a bug, see the first comment.
