at first it is great that now Unicode is widely supported in the
Reportlab Toolkit. Thanks.
Now to my problem: I use the platypus.para module for generating pages.
If I now use an opcode that is coded in UTF-8 or Unicode I get
exceptions. The easiest way to reproduce this, is to encode a string in
the 'test_program' in the module itself.
To fix an error I got with my program I changed the method "runOpCodes"
in line 703 of the recent version in the repository to:
opcode = opcode.encode("latin1","ignore")
text = escape(opcode)
Then it works fine for Postscript and TTF fonts. Any idea?
