I don't know.

The modified version of the code you posted in your precedent message works
in 2.2. So I suppose doing what I suggested in my previous message is the
right thing to do to make it always work.

it seems that all versions of python behave somewhat differently.

modified version of your code :

print sys.version
print fnt,
print string.lower(fnt)

NB : the str() call above solves the problem.

and we can't call str() "internally" when accessing every attribute, since
some are strings, others are numeric...
