Topic: RE: html to pdf-web capture-font size pt control.

You can control the font details (size/colour/type) for web capturing.

When you select the 'Open a Web Page' dialog box (Tools>Web Capture>Open Web
Page) you are presented with a 'Conversion Settings' buttons. Clicking this
will present two tabbed dialog boxes: 'General' and 'Page Layout'.

Under the 'General' tab you can select the File Type Conversion (HTML) and
click the settings button and you then have two tabs labelled 'Layout' and
'Fonts' - changing the fonts in there will change the fonts for conversion.

Unfortunately however CSS isn't supported by Acrobat yet - it's a pity, but
understandable, considering the possible variations available (and also
DHTML considerations) ...
