Topic: Font Size problem when converting HTML to PDF
Conf: (P-PDF) Beginners, Msg: 75360

I recently had my first experience with creating a PDF, by converting an html file with a list of about 85 linked pages into one large PDF file, for easy printing.

The conversion was extremely simple. My only concern now is that when it converted to PDF, it made my 10pt verdana into 15pt, even after specifying 10pt in the HTML Conversion font settings. It came out at 342 pages instead of the around 230-250 pages I expected.

I'm using a style sheet on my site, and have no font settings within the page seems to read the style sheet fine for the most part, but it leaves strange things out. I have a setting to make all horizontal rules navy and 80% width, but they are all gray and 100%. It did pull over all my other color settings and at least the right font type. Could the style sheet be effecting Adobe's conversion at all?

Thanks in advance for the assistance :)
