The <font> tag, like the <b>, <i>, and <u> tag are features of Reportlab's paragraph implementation. The <title> tag is just a special case of a paragraph. So it should probably be considered a documentation bug that those paragraph-internal tags are not in the reference. Further, I think the <font> tag was new in ReportLab 2.0 or 2.1. > Now 'title' has a 'fontName' attribute, from the DTD and > reference I deduced that tests should use this instead of > 'font' tag, is it correct ? No, because the 'fontName' can only set the font for the entire title and not just a sub-string in the title. > There is another issue when I run tests in level 2, this can be solved > by using few more arguments to Popen .

The level 2 tests show off a solution that solves this problem by starting a new sub-process for each rendering.
