Robert Morse commented on JBSEAM-4238:

Okay.  I'm pretty familiar with iText.  Let me get more familiar with p:html and then make some suggestions.  If you agree, then I'll attempt to create a patch.  This is an important issue to a few of my projects, so I'm eager to get something in place.  Thanks for your 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.
