I use PythonPoint for my lectures at the Istanbul Technical University, 
Computer Engineering Department. I needed some features (most of all, 
support for Turkish), so I've hacked the code a bit and implemented 
them. The major ones are:

- native language support through utf-8 encoded source files and ttf
- effect attributes on paragraphs, images, tables, lines, rectangles

I've also made some minor bugfixes. The resulting patch is at:

The patch also includes a sample file (htu.xml) that demonstrates the 
new features. The PDF produced from that file can be viewed at:

Any comments and bug reports would be highly appreciated.
