    I posted this reply in similar thread earlier today: http://forums.devx.com/showthread.php?t=150088. In addition, there are numerous commercial components for creating PDF files; try Googling for "PDF component".

    Of course it's possible. It's software, after all. But it's completely stupid; it will require literally hundreds of hours. Unless your salary really sucks, your boss is not particularly clever.

    As a friend of mine put it: He get bad luck when he thinks...

    The best way to convert HTML to PDF is using PDF converter. It not only converts HTML to PDF but also converts PDF files to other formats like word, excel, image, text, etc..

    I do this almost daily. I use a PDF converter driver found on the internet . Install it and it becomes a selectable converter option.Then you can convert PDFs to many forms in any program at all, including Adobe Acrobat . Just open a PDF, select convert, and choice a form you want, then you can convert html to pdf the task will be finished in several seconds. if you haven't found a good choice , you can have a try. best wishes.
