Forgive me for the shameless promotion but I'm posting because I think
you guys might find this useful.

I'd like to spread the word to the PHP community about a new website
that we've launched called Online PDF Printer

It's a service that lets developers integrate dynamic PDF creation and
downloading into their web-enabled applications with just a few lines
of code.

All you have to do is sign up for an API key, upload your document
templates and POST data to our server. We handle everything else. A
stream of PDF data is passed back to your application and you can save
it as a file, prompt the user to download it right then and there or
push it into a database.

We'd love to have anybody and everybody come check out the site, sign
up for a free account and mess around with it.

Or, for the hardcore, LaTeX. Certainly not new, but still a standard
if you need serious page layout stuff.

TeX is easier to write than PostScript/PDF, but PDF has the edge on
complex layout.

(Whether any of the Rails PDF plugins will take advantage of all those
features is another question.)
