[New-bugs-announce] [issue9986] PDF files of python docs have text missing

New submission from Amber Jain <i.amber.jain at gmail.com>:

CC: docs at python.org

I was planning to print the official python "2.7" tutorial: http://docs.python.org/tutorial/index.html.
So, I went over to Download page: http://docs.python.org/download.html and downloaded the PDF file. But the PDF have some missing text due to width of page being less than number of chars to put on a line.
For example, please have a look at page-21 (Section 3.1.3 titled "Unicode Strings"). It has an incomplete line from HTML documentation.
Here's a screenshot of what I see (and mean):

There's a line somewhere in the middle of screenshot which goes out of boundary of PDF document and fails to put out-of-boundary text on newline.
>From what I had read, it seems that this happens only with 'code snippets' in tutorial. This is probably a problem with convertor (HTML to PDF?).

Can you guys please fix it?
Thanks a lot.
