ADD. RadPdfViewer - handle invalid /NULL name encoding for Type1 and TrueType fonts
According to PDF format specification, there are three valid encoding name values (MacRomanEncoding, MacExpertEncoding and WinAnsiEncoding). There are documents that instead of skipping the optional Encoding property, are writing invalid /NULL name value in the font dictionary. Currently, in this invalid document scenario RadPdfViewer throws and catches Exception and this results in missing text content. 

We may handle this invalid document scenario by ignoring the invalid Encoding value.
