The traditional way of generating PDF files programmatically is very time consuming
The HTML-to-PDF approach is not always as precise as one may wish.
Hence, we set about creating a new approach, in which you create a template in a word processing application and then simply populate that template in PHP.
This approach is considerably less time consuming and really easy to implement.
The result is the Zend_Service_LiveDocx_* family of components.
