Subject: PDF output: am I missing something?
(I sent this a couple of weeks ago, but it never came through. Since then, I've managed to beat dblatex into submission more or less, but my basic "this is surprisingly hard" still stands, so here it is) I'm trying to generate both web pages and a print book (i.e. PDF, since that's the format Lightning Source wants) from the same source. This is being *far* harder than I expected when I selected docbook os the source format. -_- In particular, getting sane PDF output is turning out to be *really* hard, to the point where I feel like I'm missing something and would really like some advice. I've tried converting HTML to PDF in various fashions (which sounds nice because all the CSS work I'm doing carries over), which fails because internal references show up as named links rather than page numbers. I've tried the fo output from xmlto/xsltproc and fop, which by default has horrible table formatting (all columns the same width, rather than "fit the text" as I expected). dblatex has the same issue. My document has a *lot* of tables (or, rather, it has a lot of columnarly aligned text, but if there's a better way to do that I don't know what it is), so it's pretty essential that they work. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated at this point. -Robin -- http://singinst.org/ : Our last, best hope for a fantastic future.
