Thanks for that. I've looked at various html 2 pdf tools (I used 
html2ps for a project about 10 years ago). But lack of even 
basic CSS support makes the them useless for creating "pretty" PDFs.

In reality, this project doesn't really need PDF output (HTML 
would work fine), but $customer says it's a requirement, so I've 
got to make it work for creating "pretty" PDFs.

Thanks again for all the input.
