Dear Adobe: Why does Acrobat change β to ß in PDF to text conversion?

I can accept that Acrobat sucks at converting to Word or HTML, but why the hell does it change characters in a simple text conversion? Did it with three Greek characters, which I fixed by copying the character out of the PDF to replace the one in the text. Why couldn't Acrobat do that in the first place?
