That largely depends on what documents you produce. If its invoices and statements, they shouldn't be editable. If its something else, maybe. We do the former, so html to pdf works great.

I seem to recall posting small snippets to get you started on the list recently.

Found it ... March 14, in "Printing - via rendering to static HTML file and prince CSS?".
From the (vague) description on the website, I'd expect PDFreactor to work similarly
to CSS2XSLFO, so it seems to be a viable solution to create "printable" documents.

However, now that I thought of it, the idea of producing an editable document
looks mighty attractive. I hope that I manage to wait for my customer to come
up with this idea himself :-)
