@manetta Have you tried weasyprint? I'm wondering how it compares. I can at least say that the docs don't have any dumb stuff like this.

@KnowPresent yes Weasyprint works pretty well for html → pdf, but is bumping into its limits when you want to combine multiple flows on one page or want to do page-specific things.

Enjoying the non-HTML departure points of Reportlab now! But still need to figure out how to write styles and tweak templates... and the Reportlab Markdown Language is very HTML/XML like... to be continued!
