[Zope] RE: html2pdf truncating html content

Thanks, Jonathan, but no joy.  Testing for the value of of d.title
before writing it doesn't change the output and even a hardcoded
body+="text goes here" just inside the for loop doesn't get printed.

Just a wag (wild assed guess)... in your BODY loop, if d.title is null
could you be embedding a 'null' char in the text string, which may cause
html2pdf to choke?

	Refinement of problem statement:
	The DTML file on which html2pdf is called is populated by a
python script which builds and returns html by processing a list of
objects in a for loop.  The html content which is missing from the pdf
is generated inside the for loop.  As said before though, the
information built in the for loop is displayed in the DTML when it is
viewed as a webpage.
	The python is below:
	data = [n for n in context.objectValues(['RDMA Narrative','RDMA
Indicator']) if n.country==selectedCountry] 
	body+="<h1>%s</h1>\n" % selectedCountry
	body+="<!-- PAGE BREAK -->\n"
	for d in data:
	  body+="%s\n" % (d.title)
	  if d.meta_type == 'RDMA Indicator':
	    if hasattr(d,'xltohtml'):
	  elif d.meta_type == 'RDMA Narrative':
	    body+="<h3>%s</h3>" % d.narrativeType
	  body+="<!-- PAGE BREAK -->\n"
	return body

	I'm using html2pdf and it seems to be truncating the content.
The html on which html2pdf is:
	<head><title>Narrative Report</title></head>
	<!-- PAGE BREAK -->
	<h2>Narrative: PNG- Challenge Situation</h2>
	<!-- PAGE BREAK -->
	<h2>Narrative: PNG- Key Accomplishments</h2>
	<!-- PAGE BREAK -->
	<h2>Narrative: PNG- Program Performance</h2>
	<!-- PAGE BREAK -->
	<h2>Narrative: PNG- Success Stories</h2>
	<!-- PAGE BREAK -->
	<h2>Table 1-2 PNG</h2>
	<!-- PAGE BREAK -->
	<h2>Table 1-4 PNG</h2>
	<!-- PAGE BREAK -->
	<h2>Narrative: PNG- Annex II</h2>
	<!-- PAGE BREAK -->
	<h2>Narrative: PNG- Annex III</h2>
	<!-- PAGE BREAK -->
	The html which html2pdf is writing to the pdf though is:
	<head><title>Narrative Report</title></head>
	<!-- PAGE BREAK -->
	I'm at a loss to explain the truncation.  Can anyone offer some
