Hi, all:

I am learning reportlab and am trying to replace 'North',
'South', 'East' and 'West' with Chinese simplified (multibyte)
in reportlab/test/test_platypus_tables.py:
def getTable():
    t = Table((('','North','South','East','West'),
             ('Quarter 11',100,200,300,400),
             ('Quarter 22',100,400,600,800),
             (24, 16,16,18)
    return t
If I replace 'North', 'South', 'East' and 'West'
with Chinese Simplified directly in test_platypus_tables.py,
I can not see those Chinese titles in the generated pdf file
instead of strange characters.

I saw the example of "draw" Chinese in reportlab/test/test_multibyte_chs.py
but  don't know how to apply it to the above example.

Can any body help me?

Thanks in advance.
