> Subject: Code for publishing PDF from Confluence
> Next week, I start a new job, writing doc for users and administrators of a big
> complex security software product.
> The Development team already use Confluence for their internal wiki, and I
> am considering using it to also write the doc. However, the boss really wants
> me to be able to publish as PDF.
> The internet tells me that you can configure Confluence to produce a
> pleasant-looking PDF, using CSS and HTML.
> However, I have not been able to find any examples. I can write clean HTML
> and really basic CSS, but I have no idea where to start with this.
> Do you know of any examples?
> Also, do you have any opinions about the sensibleness of authoring in
> Confluence and publishing to PDF?
