I'm trying to use LazReport to generate reports which should show an 
image (the company logo) and some Chinese text.
Currently (Lazarus 1.0.4 on Linux platform) I have the following scenario:

1) Report preview is correct (Image and Chinese text properly shown)

2) Report printout shows the Image, but skips Chinese characters.

3) Pdf export shows the image, but replaces Chinese characters with 
question marks. I understand that PowerPdf doesn't support Unicode, but 
changing the font encoding from Unicode to Big5 doesn't help.

4) Html export shows the Chinese characters, but doesn't show the image.

5) Text export shows the Chinese characters, but obviously doesn't show 
the image.

Is there a way to get a printout which properly reproduces the Report 

Can someone point me in the right direction?
