I think that these fonts are a part of ghostscript distribution. (Nimbus Roman, -Sans, -Mono)
I needed to use slovak characters (similar to czech ;). Usage of truetype fonts
and everything in utf8 works for me well.
But at first moment I was surprised that reportlab didn't worked with python unicode strings.
I needed these strings explicitly encoded to utf8.
