My current solution.. (not optimal I know.. but I have no time to make it right) 1) Convert Gif/jpeg images to EPS files (3 different programs used) 2) Create LaTex source file (with form data + uploaded images) on server side scripting (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.
