My current solution.. (not optimal I know.. but I have no time to make it
1) Convert Gif/jpeg images to EPS files (3 different programs used)
2) Create LaTex source file (with form data + uploaded images) on server
(currently PHP4, no time to install/test rebol (next time yes..))
3) Use LaTeX, dvipdf and then uuencode/attach/mail it to client
But I really hope some day I can make this with one program (=REBOL), as I
read that PDF spec and it's definitely doable.
