    Hi,
    I have some text that contains url links as well as unicode
    characters. I am encoding the whole text into utf-8 and trying to
    render it using Reportlab.
    For that i am trying to use some True type fonts that support
    rendering utf8. For example Times New Roman on windows is able to
    render some german text that i have.
    The default Paragraph implementation with Platypus does not support
    url links at the moment while the experimental Paragraph
    implementation in para.py does. So i used the one in para.py. Now the
    implementation in para.py is not supporting the ttf fonts that i
    register with pdfmetrics. It still tries to render that text using
    some other font. Any suggestions on how to get around this problem.
    Anyone knows if a better version of para.py is available anytime soon.
    Regards,
    Amit Mongia
