I need to use HTML anyway. I realized that universal unicode fonts are
above 5MB in size. The report would be a 10KB PDF, but I need to embed
the font before I can send it to anyone. Since some reports needs to be
sent in emails, I need to use something else. I cannot be sending 10MB
emails for "one page" reports.
I ended up implementing the reports in HTML. I'm assuming that the
user's browser is capable of displaying any characters needed. Now there
is another problem: how to print an HTML without page header/footer
information, from a browser? But that is another problem and probably
has nothing to do with Python.
Thanks for your help anyway.
