Thanks for reply. Actually I should say "the string in the Paragraph
is too long"(sorry for my poor english), I really put the long string
in a Paragraph class and the put the Paragraph class in the table
cell, and it exceed the border.

It's wired that my reportlab has no test directory. I am using debian
and apt-get to install the reportlab for python 2.3 .

I also wonder if the Paraghaph's string is too huge could reportlab
split it to two pages ?
