Hi all,

I'm having a real hard time with reportlab and text encoding issues. 
I'm trying to get all european characters to work and common
currencies, ie. yen, euro, etc. and can't seem to get it to work.

My text is encoded in unicode and I am printing it before creating a
flowable with the text.  Python seems to be printing out the text fine
but the resulting text in the PDF is jibberish.  Can anyone shed any
light here?

when I print out the text I get the correct output.. 


but when I view the PDF I get jibberish like..



Any ideas?
