It's true that the notebook and grid components of wxPython are not 
completely integrated into PythonCard but they can still be used quite 
easily once you figure out how.

The process of figuring out can be made easier by a working example. The 
real life application Blood Pressure Monitor

can be used as an example of using the notebook, grid and htmlwin 
widgets in PythonCard.

I use this application to input the pressure values I've registered with 
my own meter and to produce a PDF page with PyChart to hand to my doctor 
to inspect when I visit him twice a year.
