[reportlab-users] Pythonpoint

I have a couple of quick questions about the pythonpoint demo, if I may.  I 
have not yet dug in to the code, and before I did I wanted to see if someone 
else had the answers first.  I'm running ReportLab 1.15.

When I run the pythonpoint.xml demo, several of the slides run off the right 
edge of the page.  On page 3, "XML Notation", both the top and bottom paragraph 
run off the right edge.

Further, all of the paragraphs seem to have their first line indented by one 
space.  Is this a known issue?

Does the Acrobat reader have enough hooks to allow one to map a mouse click 
into the "show next page" action, making it even closer to PowerPoint?

Finally, is there a good, lightweight XML-aware editor that would ease the 
creation of these slides?
