Dear all, I posted below query on tex group but couldn't get support, can anyone here guide me?

I'm using truetype font in pdflatex and accessing extended chacarcter
in single (not composite) via utf8 input encoding. I noticed that when
I copy any extended charcter from PDF and paste it in MS word then it
gets changed to some other character.

It looks like that in PDF its appearing from the sub font map (256
character encoding, e.g. cyberb00.enc, cyberb01.enc, etc) and loosing
its actual unicode value.

A small sample to demonstrate the situation is

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[utf8ttf]{inputenc}
\usepackage{ttfucs}
\DeclareTruetypeFont{cyberbit}{cyberbit}

\begin{document}

Ā
ā

\unichar{"100}
\unichar{"101}

\end{document}
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

Can anyone tell why this is happening? And how this can be solved?
