josera has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Yesterday i push a message about how to convert HTML and SVG to PDF, some monks help me with very useful advice.
Now i have an idea about how can i do what i want, i think that i'm going to generate HTML pages and use html2ps to translate it to ps, and afterthat i can use ps2pdf to convert the ps to pdf, but i don't know how can i convert the SVG files to PS.
The problem is that i can't install programs and the administrator doesn't want to give me privileges to install more program, so i want to find some tool that could render the SVG files, generating PS and to incrusted it into the HTML pages.
The system where i'm working is Windows. I've think that i can use fop, a program of Apache, but i can't, because fop uses java and to render SVG files need an X server.
Some idea to how can i convert SVG files to PS or PDF?
P.S. Imagemagick can convert SVG files to another formats, but are this formats also vectorial or bitmaps? I'd like that my PDF had the graphics in a vectorial format.
Thank you
Yours, sincerely
José Ramón

    In general we need some type of format conversion flow chart to solve this and related problem.
