How to use specific charset and css property in apex pdf document?

I have used toPdf() method of Blob object in an apex class that is triggered with a custom button for attach pdf document to a custom object. But pdf content can not be displayed Turkish character and also can not be use some property of css. For example:

style="border-left-style:dotted;"

 I have used following apex code:

global class AccountPDFGenerator
{
    webservice static void generateInvoicePDF(String accountId)
    {
//        Account account = [SELECT Id,Name FROM Account WHERE Id=:accountId];
        
        String accId = accountId;
        
        String pdfContent = '';
        try
        {
            pdfContent = '<html><head><meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"></meta></head><body>';           
            pdfContent = pdfContent + '<p style="color:red">' + 'öçşğüıÖÇŞĞÜİ' + '</p>';
pdfContent +=  '<table>' +                     
                                        '<tr>' +
                                           '<td align="center" style="border-top-style:dotted; border-bottom-style:dotted;">aaaaaaaa</td></tr></table>' + 
            pdfContent = pdfContent + '</body></html>';
        }catch(Exception e)
        {
            pdfContent = pdfContent + '<P>THERE WAS AN ERROR GENERATING PDF: ' + e.getMessage() + '</P>';
        }
 //       pdfContent = 'öçşğüıÖÇŞĞÜİ'; 
        
        Attachment attachmentPDF = new Attachment();
        attachmentPDF.parentId = accId;
        attachmentPDF.Name = 'Invoice.pdf';
//        attachmentPDF.body= Blob.valueOf(pdfContent);
        attachmentPDF.body = Blob.toPDF(pdfContent); //This creates the PDF content
        insert attachmentPDF;
      
    }
 
    
}

 And this is javascript code of custom button:

{!REQUIRESCRIPT("/soap/ajax/15.0/connection.js")}
{!REQUIRESCRIPT("/soap/ajax/15.0/apex.js")}
sforce.apex.execute("AccountPDFGenerator","generateInvoicePDF", {accountId:"{!Account.Id}"});
window.alert("pdf created" );
document.location.reload(true);
 

 
Created of pdf file after clicking the custom button doesn't contain some character and some html feature as I mentioned. Output of the pdf document is öçüÖÇÜ for following line:

pdfContent = pdfContent + '<p style="color:red">' + 'öçşğüıÖÇŞĞÜİ' + '</p>';

 

 Do you have an any idea, can you help urgently?
