Previous Entry xhtml (php) to doc (rtf) or pdf Oct. 12th, 2007 @ 07:02 pm
Is there a way to convert xhtml formatted documents as a document/rich text file or a pdf on the fly?

I have looked at htmldoc, but it does not support css in the current release and even in the upcoming 1.9 release, only CSS1 tags are supported and not the positioning tags.

What I am looking to do is create my resumé in an xhtml 1.0 or 1.1 document and be able to have it convert to word or even pdf. All the agencies that have been contacting me have requested a doc format of my resumé. I have a doc (and pdf) version, but I hate having to do double entry and then save to pdf. I could save as html in OO.org, but I hate doing that. I like the clean xhtml resum&eacue;.

My resumé can be found <a href="http://www.lordjester.com/resume/>here</a>. Already, there is a revision difference on the technical resumé. Also, the non-technical version is not offered up in doc and pdf. I have searched quite a bit and fond services, but they are using the aforementioned htmldoc toolkit. There is a lot of hits on rtf to xhtml, but not vice versa. Thanks for any help you can give. Jeff

not quite what you're looking for, but i store my cv on google docs, then i can send it out as a URL or doc/pdf if requested.

Unfortunately, it looks like it'd only really be an option on a dynamic, db driven resume. That is in the back of my mind, but it will be a bit.

Also, I would need to install the software on the server. This is not on my server, so I will continue looking.

Thanks for the info though.

The Google solution is kind of what I am looking for, just on my own site.

Re: Interesting

i had exactly the same problem as you... had my cv in xhtml but needed to have different versions in different formats. i gave up trying to find a solution and went with google. =)
