Ken,

thank you for the answer.

Strange. 
I tried Reader 8, Reader 9 and Acrobat Pro 9. All of them will copy the text.
The copied text is ABCD(0x0500)XYZ for the PDF/A files from GS 8.63 (as a
example for earlier versions) and GS 8.70.
For the GS 8.71 file it is
(0x0100)(0x0200)(0x0300)(0x0400)(0x0500)(0x0600)(0x0700).

I know that, but I wanted to make things simple regarding the ommandline to
create the files.

This is definitely not the case (at least it is not *only* in 8.70) because GS
8.63 behaves like GS 8.70.

I will and I will post my results.

Thank you,
Markus
