Rendering HTML as an image

Anyone know of any good tools (server side) that will render HTML as an
image? I need this for an ad serving project and the client wants the
ads rendered as images.

I’m guessing there isn’t anything rubyish out there, but I could make a
call from ruby to java or C if needed.

thanks

Oh, sorry, missed that part (actually the most important one…)

Rmagick, while awesome, will not render HTML as an image.

The part you are looking at is #3. It’s a tricky procedure.
