Tobi, i suggest to add the following note:

 Use Times for the title: C<--font TITLE:13:Times>
+Note that you need to quote the argument to B<--font> if the font-name
+contains whitespace:
+--font "TITLE:13:Some Font"
 If you do not give a font string you can modify just the size of the default font:
 C<--font TITLE:13:>.
