Hi, I tried PDF writer , but it doesn't have HTML to PDF Converter. Infact it is a PDF writer itself not a converter.. I've HTML pages with rich css or Strings with html+css such that they are converted to PDF. The idea is that web is all about RGB color model and when it comes to Digital Printing its all CMYK color model. My html page with rich css in it should be converted to PDF document and all the RGB colors in my html and css should be converted to CMYK color model in the output pdf document. Please suggest me any softwares/libraries/servers/tools that does this... Even Proprietary softwares/libraries/servers/tools are fine with me. Any help is appreciated w.r.to PDF converters ? Thanks, Ashwin

Hi Ashwin, PrinceXML (http://www.princexml.com/) seem to be the daddy of all HTML/ CSS to PDF converters. The evaluation is free although a commercial server license will set you back a hefty US$3800. Here's an excellent article on integrating it with Ruby: http://sublog.subimage.com/articles/2007/05/29/htm... Cheers, Olly.

And that's for a serverwide license. If you want to install your rails app on several servers (e.g. installations on several customer servers), you'll need to pay that license fee over and over again.

A workaround to this might be to run a PDF service on a single machine and just make calls to that from your server cluster :-)
