Right now, wordaxe heavily uses the ReportLab paragraph code.
Unfortunately, this is quite complex and hard to understand;
furthermore there isn't any specification.

If wordaxe adopted the CSS 2 box model, then we had the specification for free, and we could rewrite the code accordingly.
This would have the additional benefit that HTML to PDF conversion would become easier and more exact.
