Last Modified: 2013-12-25
Hi,

I converted a Pdf document to HTML.

It seems same in IE with pdf.
But when I print the HTML, it is very different with pdf.

I tried some technics in HTML.
But can not find a solid and exact way to solve this.

How can I easily do this.
With dreamveawer, excel, css, etc.

You can check the sample files from here.

No background colors but that is normal

I see a spacing issue.
I will be quiet and let someone with more printing in IE expertise comment

Commented:
Isn't that sort of going backwards? the whole point of PDF (ie Portable Document Format) is to provide a file that anyone can use (and print) regardless of their set up. Seems to me you are trying to reinvent the wheel?

My thoughts exactly - however some people do not want to be dependant on 3rd party plugins so I also understand

You are right.

But Pdf can not be filled in Computer without extra program.

Also, I want to show some info about how to fill correctly while user filling the form.

This pdf is a official document. So it must be nearly same in paper.

Thanks for help

ERm... So a PDF form with highlighting and tool tip and auto advance is simpler for a user than to load an excel spreadsheet???

I do not agree and I do not know how to answer your question

But user can not save the pdf form.
Save a file is doesnt't worth to discussing.

I found a solution with putting the pdf form as image to background of word and make text controls in word and share this document to users.

I mean, saving is a must for all computer users.
