Lets say, you have an XML-invoice like the attached file (simple well organised data about an invoice).

No, I want to generate a PDF file that looks like a printed invoice. This file will be mailed (or FTPed or wathever..) to the receiver.

Is it possible to make the PDF in a way so the receiver easily could extract the data?

The point is that I want the receiver to be able to both see and print the invoice (e.g. with Acrobat Reader), and also process the invoice automaticly without having to run OCR processes on the PDF.

The most wanted info in any invoice is amount, currency, duedate and accountnumber. This info should be very easy to extract from the PDF-invoice. What is the best way to do this?
