TCPDF HTML with Special Characters displays empty PDF file

Hi All ,

I am using TCPDF Library Version: 5.9.011. I am trying to execute HTML layout as PDF. For which I tried with example provide with the site

$html = '<h1>HTML Example</h1>
<h2>List</h2>
Some special characters: &lt; € &euro; &#8364; &amp; è &egrave; &copy; &gt; \\slash \\\\double-slash \\\\\\triple-slash
';
// output the HTML content
$pdf->writeHTML($html, true, false, true, false, '');

//Close and output PDF document
$pdf->Output('example_006.pdf', 'I');

Open in new window


Apparently found that generated PDF only default header and footer with middle content blank.

However if I remove special characters like:

$html = '<h1>HTML Example</h1>
<h2>List</h2>
Some special characters:
';

Open in new window


PDF gets its middle content as specified in $html

Am I missing something or doing something wrong?

Please help me to rectify.

I was finally able to get that to run and generate the correct file with PHP 5.2.11 on WAMP on Windows XP after I set the 'max_execution_time' to 120 seconds.

For little bit HTML contents it works, but huge HTML forms still not possible.
