After your somewhat vague description, I would say that your task
is not a standard Zope use case.
Zope is Web application server. Your task does not seem to
be a web application.
If you want to manage your "contracts" via a Web interface,
then Zope may help you with this part of your task.
Zope by itself will not help you to generate layout faithful PDF.
There are tools around, like "reportlab", for such tasks that can
be used together with Zope.
You can also automate OpenOffice from Zope (but see
in "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" my notes
of warning concerning this use case).
