Cfdocument PDF has quit working after months of working fine.  Specifically, the style sheets and images are no longer honored.  We checked directory security based on previous question and this was not our solution.  we are running MX7 on a Windows 2003 server.  Last update was March 11 - a new JVM package was installed to accommodate the daylight savings time change.  (j2sdk1.4.2_11)  There are no other known issues with these websites.  All references to the style sheets and images are inside the <cfdocument> tags.

I ran across a similar issue in the past, I am not sure about the images, but for the styles sheets I changed the page to a style.cfm page instead of a .css

Then within the <cfdocument> tags I have this.

      <cfoutput>
            <style type="text/css">
             <cfincludetemplate="/#application.applicationname#/style.cfm">
            </style>
      </cfoutput>

This seems to be more reliable that the normal way to link to styles for us when we export to pdf or other media.
