Hi Adam,

thanks for the compliment ;-) If you send me an example I will figure
out for you what the problem is.

By the way, I am currently working on a complete rewrite of PISA where I
will support HTML5 and CSS. The goal is to support as much CSS selectors
as possible. I hope that the new version will fit the hole between HTML
and PDF so that web developers can get good PDF documents by using their
HTML and CSS skills.

New versions and more informations will be available on the PISA
homepage: <http://pisa.spirito.de> New versions are likely to be
published in late November 2007.
