Subject Re: How to process xhtml form data into pdf document?
Date Wed, 01 Nov 2006 14:34:19 GMT
Jeremias provided a solution[1] to a similar question I had.  Also, I 
wonder if XForms might be a better option for you--there are some open 
source server-side solutions you might want to look at[2].  (However, I 
have not yet used XForms myself so am unsure here.)
