Hi all,
If some one could point me in the right direction for my project I'd be
forever grateful. Here goes...

Currently, I have a portal were clients enter info into form fields. The info
from the field is put into a php doc and previewed in a preformated "Sell-
Sheet" with the variable in the appropriate places. With me so far???

When the HTML proof is ok, a file is written for backup as HTML and the
variables are emailed and put into a database, blah, blah, blah. (This part
works fine for the purposes we need it for.)

Here is the question, The HTML is very limiting and we would like to use a
pdf proofing system. We would like the all other aspects to stay the same,
but we would like to generate PDF's in proof and print quality in real time
for the client using images, fonts and text flow(rag).

I am a very beginner and I know very little about PHP. I've heard PDFLib
was the way to go. If so, is there a clear cut "how to" somewhere???
I've download the manual and I can now make paper airplanes and some
really nice hats.

Here's what I'm running:
MAC OSX (10.3.6), G5, Apache, PHP4, Mysql
