[reportlab-users] Asian text not rendered

Japanese text in pdf files produced by reportlab 2.0 displays in some
pdf viewers, but not in others.

The demo Japanese pdf file from the reportlab site
(http://www.reportlab.org/docs/jmed.pdf) displays correctly using the
Evince pdf viewer on fedora 6, but the Japanese text isn't rendered at
all when using the Kpdf viewer.

However, a pdf file with Japanese text produced by openoffice is
rendered in both evince and kpdf viewers without any difficulty.

Reportlab 2.0 files that I have produced with Japanese text also fail to
be rendered accurately in kpdf, but show in the evince pdf viewer.

Can reportlab be tweaked to avoid this anomaly?
