|Summary||05886: Overwork PDF export(s) so they make use of XHTML + CSS and look nicer|
|Description||According to example #61 at http://www.tcpdf.org/examples.php the TCPDF library is able to use XHTML+CSS for layout and styling. This might be a good approach to "connect" the browser output and the PDF code so all overviews that can be exported as PDF will look the same.|
would also make it easy to customize some print screens like printanswers, which could then even match a certain template's look and feel.
|Tags||No tags attached.|
|What do you think, Carsten. Would that be a good start once we start overworking the PDF exports?|
Imho TCPDF only support pretty basic HTML, so I am not sure if that works.
Anyway, this is not a bug so please move it to the development section.
|TCPDF definitely does not support most of the HTML spec.. We should create custom pdf-templates (which use html / css) as their base, but exporting existing html to pdf will be ugly.|
