mcdave,

I use PDF::API2 and agree with your comments. I will try CAM::PDF in the future to see how it can expand my tools.

I'm guessing your on Windows, since most versions of *nix have 'pdftohtml', but a tool that I use and install on Windows may help you. It's call 'PDFCreator' and I've used it for years. Available at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/pdfcreator/

Quote from the site: "PDFCreator easily creates PDFs from any Windows program. Use it like a printer in Word, Excel or any other Windows application. A PDF takes less storage space, and is easier to send with email. Make PDF creator part of your the software suite you have installed on your computer for easy PDF creation."

I have to agree with the quote. It makes it easy to print a pdf version of your document, and then send it as an attachment to email.
