I've a problem generating pdf documents on the fly. This is
the environment:

PHP 4.1.2

I'm using PDI to use pre generated PDFs and fill in the user data
on the fly. Up to now this works superb. My client can change the
template with word or excel and generates a pdf-document using
adobe pdf-writer. I add my php classes and fill in the dynamic data.

Some specials. My client want to use "arial-narrow" which also worked
fine. But here is my problem, in some cases the output looks scrambled,
which mean the dynamic data is not printed correctly, some characters
are above each other etc. As I tested this depends also on the operating
system the enduser is using.

Could there be a problem with gdi memory under windows, or is this
a bug when generating? Any ideas welcome.
