Type 1 fonts: many of the commonly available free iso-8859-2 fonts
are unfortunately broken. They were created by modifying the
glyphs of iso-8859-1 fonts, but whoever done this failed to rename
the glyphs to their correct PostScript names -- basically the font
remains an iso-8859-1 font. This means that when AW looks for
the Polish glyphs in the font, it does not find them. As a
workaround you can create a custom u2g file for such fonts which
associates the glyph names the font actually uses (which you will
find in the font's afm file) with the required Unicode values; the u2g
file needs to have same name as the font (times.pfa -> times.u2g),
for format of the file see adobe-full.u2g that comes with the AW
TTF fonts: you need to run the ttfadmin.sh script specifying the
correct encoding, in this case ISO-8859-2, this will create the
required files automatically.
