Sorry, it deals with PDF generation, not parsing and rendering. We
have a commercial library handling page splitting and combining, but
that does not do rendering.

The best renderers I know of are Ghostscript (which is not easily
packaged on Windows), and Xpdf. The latter has commercial wrappers
available (DLL, OCX etc) which are easy to deploy, and I previously
found it worked well in its OCX incarnation, but I don't know enough
about .NET. http://www.glyphandcog.com/
