Anyone know of a positional css-capable replacement for htmldoc?


This is needed for new versions of pattern skin that are positional css-based. Either that or I have to rebuild my print skin with tables frown

Some css-support is in the 1.9 series of HTMLDOC already, no luck using that? (http://www.htmldoc.org/roadmap.php).

Else I hear some are using mozilla as a batch rendering engine, I have no details on this approach though.

>The 1.9 series will focus on supporting UTF-8, basic CSS1 functionality, INPUT and TEXTAREA form fields, background images in tables, and custom Type 1 fonts.

Sadly this does not include the positional CSS used by latest versions of Pattern Skin.

Could you attach a screenshot of how much / where it is off, curious to where it fails?

For ~100% compliance with screen representation there's no way around using a browser-engine for rendering; even openoffice which is relatively easy scripted for this kind of task won't produce acceptable results.

(If you have $$ to throw after this, there are acceptable solutions available - but I presume that's not the domain we are exploring? :-)).

http://michele.pupazzo.org/mozilla2ps/ looks like a way to proceed on this, utilizes XULRunner.

Any luck on the screenshot?
