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.

Thanks a lot

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

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

This pdf forms is very elite.

But I need something easy then pdf for end user.

Is there an easy solution to convert it.

Thanks

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.

Thanks. Does Acrobat Reader Free edition is enough for users' input.

I tried with CutePdf, it doesn't give option to save.

Yes - absolutely. That is the only way I am communicating with my tax office.

It is even secure and takes a digital signature
