"one step" means using a single Python script and process, rather than a
bunch of
different tools used in a chain (such as FrameMaker and Distiller, or
automating
OpenOffice).

This is an open source library and if you want these capabilities for free,
you have to
be prepared to learn about Python and basic XML manipulations, and write
your own
converter for your own XML language.  This involves basic programming skills
and is not about ReportLab per se.
Pythonpoint gives an example of one way to do this and you could study the
code.

Alternatibely, if you are looking for commercial help, we are very happy to
help you
on a consulting basis, as are several other consultants on this list.

Best Regards,

Andy Robinson
