Re: HTML to PDF conversion

What if the page layout (i.e. text and images not appearing in right place 
on page like in original source), is not correct in PDF file, is that more 
of a problem with the XHTML->XSL:FO (stylesheet) conversion or the XSL:FO -> 
PDF conversion.

I had problems with getting FOP to produce output, however Ibex PDF creator 
did produce output, but it was  like how I mentioned above.
