VERY good work!  Concise, direct and useful.  

Can you show something about using Unicode chars with ReportLab?  Some words
(I used a fruit theme here, trying to make it easy for an example) for you
to play with there (in Brazilian Portuguese):

- maçã (apple)
- abóbora (pumpkin)
- pé (foot)
- limão (lemon)
- limões (lemons)
- maracujá (passion fruit)

;-)  This was my main problem when I tried ReportLab for the first time. 
(Later I learnt that the secret is in the fonts that you use, but I still
have problems with that ;-))

Also, putting a packaged (zip, gzip, whatever) version of the files you used
would also help people to reproduce your examples more easily ;-)

Thanks, again!  It is a great job!
