Read the 3rd chapter of the User Guide. It explains everything about the
fonts and font encodings. AFAIK iso-8859-1 is the default code set of
ReportLab, and the special characters of the other ones must be defined
by the mentioned way. So there is no "native" support for iso-8859-2..9
code sets, but if you write a python class defining the special Czech
characters once, you can import it many other programs, and you are able
to use the advantages of ReportLab.
