Conversion of HTML to PDF (for postcards)

ArcticFox LaurelMazeGlendurganGardenCornwallEngland

What we have is clearly better than what Carl had before, but we do not seem to be respecting the required postcard size of 3.5x5 inches. We have 4 attempts. Hopefully the files created in this process are correctly identified below, but please know there may be errors til we work with this a bit.

  1. Carl began with an html table hardwired with lots of very specific measurements. The pdf processor was not able to render it.
  2. James R. recoded the html so that the pdf converter could render it. Cell sizes appear to be 4 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches.
  3. Carl integrated James's work so that it could be processed by his CMS. On measuring cells, it appears that we are failing to meet the required postcard size of 3.5x5 inches. These cell sizes appear to be 4 1/4 x 5 5/16 inches. Testing is very difficult since Carl does not have a tabloid printer and the neareast one he can use is 10 miles away. Attemps to simulate tabloid printing on a letter size printer failed. These cell sizes appear to be 4 1/4 x 5 5/16 inches.
  4. So Carl created a letter landscape version for easier testing. It appears to be necessary to add an "orientation" spec to James' html code to get landscape. Carl added one, but maybe not correctly. Cell sizes are still not correct as near as he can tell. How can we revise the html code so it will render with cell sizes correct for postcards ? And, how to we properly add an orientation spec.
  5. Task 7 was created for testing & development work, letter landscape (LL) 4 postcards per page. James, when you feel the latest html code for both TP & LL is good, we'll declare we've done Task 9.
  6. Task 8 is hopefully the purpose of this effort, tabloid portrait (TP) 8 postcards per page. James, when you feel the latest html code for both TP & LL is good, we'll declare we've done Task 9.
  7. Task 9 will be completed when both James & Carl feel our work is solid for Task 7 (letter landscape (LL) 4 postcards per page) and for Task 8 (tabloid portrait (TP) 8 postcards per page).
