I should have clarified.

My comment was in regards to generating pixel perfect reports and documents from database or XML files, not HTML to PDF.

Although I believe jasper does use iText to produce its PDF documents.

If you need pixel perfect reports and documents in general check out Jasper.

Hi Richard,

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

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 possible.

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.
