I have always used LaTeX in the past, because latex gives me a 
comfortable way to generate tables (I generated invoices).

The way I did it, was to have a template latex file, with some special 
keywords like ADDRESS, MONEYSUM etc. which I would search and replace 
with a simple regexp while writing the new file into /tmp. Then a single 
run with pdflatex gives me a pdf in /tmp which I either send back via 
the browser (and the proper mime-type) or spool to the right printer 
directly via a call to "lpr".
