Norman Richards commented on JBSEAM-4238:

Hi.   I'd love to improve the p:html tag, as this has been an area that many users would like to see better supported.  I'm not entirely sure what iText is actually capable of.   If you'd like to do some exploring in that area, I'd be happy to give you some help.

> Creating PDFs with content out of a database or user input is a very powerful Seam feature.  Currently, the rich:editor control coupled with the p:html or p:html / s:formattedText tags comes close to allowing a user to create relatively complex PDF output.  However, there isn't consistency between what the rich:editor creates and what Seam PDF can produce.  For example, saving rich:editor input as Seam Text disables the ability to create ordered or unordered lists.   Saving it as html, loses the ability to define font characteristics.   Possibly a quick fix would be to allow Seam PDF pages to reference a CSS.  Another approach might be to modify the s:formattedText tag to handle what the rich:editor creates.   I have a strong interest in this, and would be willing to try some solutions if I could get pointed in the correct direction.  Thanks.
