This report is far too vague: what did you do and what reported the file was corrupt? (Note that Acrobat reader is famous for mis-rendering files which meet the Adobe PDF specification.)

Please do read the posting guide and restate your problem following the guidelines there.

Finally, I don't see any claim that arbitrary font encodings would produce a valid PDF file, so what did you read to suggest that?
