  • Look at the examples provided to see how it works.

  • It is very important to provide valid HTML 4.01 to the converter, but only what is in the <body>. Use the <page> tag.

  • for borders: it is advised that they are like solid 1mm #000000

  • for padding, they are applicable only on tags table, th, td, div, li

  • A default font can be specified, if the requested font does not exist or if no font is specified:


  • The possibility to protect your PDF is present, CF Example 7.

  • Some tests can be enabled (true) or disabled (false):

  • setTestIsImage method: test that images must exist

  • setTestTdInOnePage method: test that the contents of TDs fit on one page

  • A DEBUG mode to know the resources used is present. It is activated by adding the following command just after the contructor (see Example 0): $htmlpdf->setModeDebug();

  • Some specific tags have been introduced:

    • <page></page> (CF Exemple 7 & wiki)

      • Determines the orientation, margins left, right, top and bottom, the background image
      • and the background color of a page, its size and position, the footer.

      • through the attribut pageset="old" (see Example 3 & 4 & wiki)

    • <nobreak></nobreak> (CF wiki)

      • Used to force the display of a section on the same page.
