> --------------------------------------------
>                 Key: DOXIA-53
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven Doxia
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>            Reporter: Vincent Siveton
>            Assignee: Vincent Siveton
>             Fix For: 1.0-alpha-9
>         Attachments:,,
> Propose a Pdf/Rtf support with the iText framework for Doxia. 
> Here is the architecture: 
> - added an itext module in doxia-modules
> - created a doxia-doc-renderer (similar to doxia-site-renderer)
> - created an iText plugin for maven
> The iText module generates iText XML files. So, documents should be generated in Pdf
or Rtf format (supported by iText).
> You could see the howto in the plugin for more information or try the project tests.
> According MPIR-17, we could be more generic by defining a new generated XML Doxia (I
mean another DoxiaSink) and apply XSLT  to generate other formats (like javahelp)
> Known limitations:
> - known limitations from the iText framework like roman list
> - i18n for the "table of contents" title
> - reports are not supported
> - Renderer for Fml and Xdoc format should be improved. Parsers suppose that the renderer
is HTML. 
> Attachments are:
> - doxia zip with diff (containing doxia-doc-renderer and doxia-module-itext) and resources
> - itext plugin zip with diff and resources
> - a zip containing generated documents for the site project (real examples)
