Hi all,

Richard reminded me that there are talented people on this list with little 
chance to contribute.

Today I need your help on finding the best way to handle forms in GNUmed.
Here is what I had in mind.

- cross platform, write once -deploy on many platforms
- straight forward way of coming up and editing forms
- seperate forms from content
- ideally save a copy of a printed form

- I know no python standard for printing , cross platform that is

possible solutions:
- use LATEX for forms, create ps-files, feed them to the printer
--> LATEX forms are hard to build and maintain ?
- use reportlab, a python library, abstracted rml (xml) forms if you like, 
creates pdf
- use the wxpython printing framework for drwaing text and graphics

open issues:
- how does one print the pdfs created by reportlab by using the wxpython 
framework? Is it possible to create an image from reportlab and feed it to 
the wxpython framework as a canvas ?

Any help is appreciated including UML diagrams and moch up guis , sample code
