Hi Richard,

Searching the jaspersoft knowledge base I found this response for html ==>

JasperReports is not a tool to convert HTML into PDF.
You might try other PDF specialized tools such as iText.

While that is an old entry I could find no later verification it was

I think iText will likely be a solution - once I get me head around it.

Thank you for your suggestion though

Since you mentioned Pixel Perfect, Jasper Reports is a great way to
generate Pixel Perfect documents.

Hi Don,

Actually graphics and Images are not the real limits of printer files.
Instead support for colors, fonts and barcodes is limited.

I agree Nathan (or similar) solution is the best choice if your looking
for flexibility but not if you need "pixel perfect" Pdf.

For "pixel perfect" documents I've used Apache Pdfbox (free) or iText (NOT
free) both of them Java.
