Subject Re: How To Implement Ligature For Indian Languages In Pdf Documents?
Date Tue, 25 Oct 2011 14:21:00 GMT

My application allows school students in Gujarat, India to learn their
subjects online. Browser and Flash player manage to display Gujarati on the
screen but I need a printing solution for them to be able to print the
question papers they generate. The application currently generates HTML
pages that they can print but an HTML page doesn't give the kind of control
a PDF document does, for page formatting and storage.
