Talking of PDF, maybe some one may know this answer.
We generate PDFs using Perl, for a client which prints these PDFs onto a
sheet with a fixed grid. The PDF fills in text on the sheets.
However, each printer prints the PDF differently. It sometimes aligns;
most times it doesn't.
Has anyone else come across this problem and if so, what can be done, if
