What is available for PHP Report Writing?

My question this evening is: What is available for PHP report writing tools? Should I create my own report writing tool using php or are there any open source php report writing tools available that the experts recommend? These reports will need to be printed and look professional.

I had seen more free / commercial reporting tools for "Java" ... not for PHP ... also, the most of the application reports are designed with HTML + CSS. So, it is better to design the reports with HTML, CSS, XHTML, JavaScript and PHP.. Have facility to export .pdf, .doc ...

The only way to look professional on WEB Systems is using PDF or another export method, cause HTML or images have that url footer (arrghh).

There are some good scripts to do it on sourceforge.net like sourceforge.net.
I thing that its always better to make our own report...
