[Chicago-talk] Create PDF Recommendation

We've used htmldoc in the past with limited success 
(http://www.htmldoc.org). One thing I've looked at recently is 
OpenOffice. They have a full suite of converters and you can control the 
process from a command line. If you do a google search for "openoffice 
command line converter" you'll get lots of links. This would be my next 
choice for doing html -> pdf conversions. There are CPAN modules for 
interacting with OpenOffice as well but I don't think the conversion 
options are exposed through them.

Best regards,

Jon Scarbrough
