Calling render_to_string from DRB, or a Rake task?

Has anyone accomplished this magical feat and have code they’d like to
share?
I’m trying to offload some of my PDF generation stuff into DRB, and
generate
some PDFs from Rake tasks. Of course, these PDFs are driven using HTML
from
my application…that comes from RHTML templates.

Right now I’m doing it via a module inside my controller - but of course
all
that Rails ActionView and ActionController magic go away when you’re in
DRB
or Rake land.

I’m going crazy here - someone point me in the right direction.

You ultimately don’t use render_to_string, but you get the same results.
