What problem did you have on this score then?

I've been using PDF::Report on top of PDF::API2 and not had any
problem with german, spanish, etc

We have an internal library that handles layout for, admittedly fairly
boring business documents  / reports ( using a simplistic naive
styling and positioning set of attributes ) pretty well.

After investing some time working on it and the styling attributes for
the parts of the page, we're getting better results than the
proprietary off the shelf java product it replaces.
