       This manual page documents briefly the xhtml2pdf command.

       xhtml2pdf is an HTML-to-PDF converter using the ReportLab Toolkit,
       HTML5lib and pyPdf.

       It supports HTML 5 and CSS 2.1 (and some of CSS 3). It is completely
       written in pure Python so it is platform independent. The main benefit
       of this tool that a user with Web skills like HTML and CSS is able to
       generate PDF templates very quickly without learning new technologies.
       Easy integration into Python frameworks like CherryPy, KID Templating,
       TurboGears, Django, Zope, Plone, Google AppEngine (GAE) etc.
