I was planning to print the official python "2.7" tutorial: http://docs.python.org/tutorial/index.html. So, I went over to Download page: http://docs.python.org/download.html and downloaded the PDF file. But the PDF have some missing text due to width of page being less than number of chars to put on a line. For example, please have a look at page-21 (Section 3.1.3 titled "Unicode Strings"). It has an incomplete line from HTML documentation. Here's a screenshot of what I see (and mean): http://amberj.devio.us/pub/screenshots/pdfdoc.png

There's a line somewhere in the middle of screenshot which goes out of boundary of PDF document and fails to put out-of-boundary text on newline. From what I had read, it seems that this happens only with 'code snippets' in tutorial. This is probably a problem with convertor (HTML to PDF?).

Can you guys please fix it? Thanks a lot.
