Pdf include

Hi Guys,

Denkh HTML Reporter

More and more often companies are asking for output in PDF files. They can be more visually sophisticated with fonts, bolding, lines, bar graphs, etc. One of the problems with HTML is the lack of page numbering on listings. This can be accomplished in PDF with headers and footers available too!

Denkh is in the "amduus" repository: http://www.oehive.org/amduus/Denkh/
