Paragraph line using reportlab platypus.
Elegant way :
Paragraph(text="<font name=Courier-Bold color=red size=12>A First set
of words</font><font name=Helvetica-Bold size=8>Smaller this
Here the "mynewstyle" is ignored and the formatting is governed by
the xml attributes in the text block.

fontSize=12, greek=0, italic=0, link=None, rise=0, strike=0, sub=0,
text='Another set of words', textColor=Color(1,0,0,1),
underline=0), ParaFrag(bold=0, fontName='Helvetica-Bold', fontSize=5,
greek=0, italic=0, link=None, rise=0, strike=0, \
sub=0, super=0, text='Still Smaller this time',
