The issue I have with wkhtmltopdf and many other HTML to PDF tools is that they do not support CSS Paged Media (w3.org/TR/css-page-3/). This can be a huge problem if you do more complex print projects. Or did htmltopdf-java add support on top of wkhtmltopdf?

I actually have two websites in the area of HTML to PDF html2pdf.guru/Paged-Media/Page-Size/ and printcss.live/, where I try to guide people to the right tool for their use case.

Your websites are amazing! You are proving an amazing service! I wonder why I didnt find them earlier! I have to admit I didnt know about CSS Media Page before.

I dont think htmltopdf-java added support on top but I am trying this out later.
