Hi - yes, it's me again :)

Being a native danish speaker, we are blessed with three extra letters
:)
Working with pdfgen, i get

<code>
from reportlab.pdfgen import canvas
c = canvas.Canvas("C:\\mypdf.pdf")
c.setFont('Arial',12)
c.setFont('Helvetica',12)
c.drawString(10,10,'æøå')
</code>

but then, I get : 

<error>
UnicodeError: ASCII encoding error: ordinal not in range(128)
</error>

How do I manage to get Latin-1 (or even better full unicode) support
in pdfgen ? 

Svenne
