Since you've revealed that you're not generating a PDF, but rather an HTML page, your question really becomes "How do I generate the image?" Because, unfortunately, you can't rely on the client having the correct typeface or overruling you on what size they'd like their text. So the only way to go about it is to generate an image and include that. Without knowing what your toolchain is, it's hard to provide any further input than that. So, are you trying to solve: 1) How to generate an image as a part of an XSLT process? (I don't believe it could be done with standard XSLT, but it's entirely possible it could be done via some extensions, such as those I use to datestamp my manuscripts) ..or... 2) How to generate the image programmatically at all? The first could be an XSL-list question, but the latter isn't, really, except that there are various image libraries for popular languages. I've used ImageMagick, though I'm not an expert. http://www.imagemagick.org/ -- _Deirdre web: http://deirdre.net blog: http://deirdre.org/blog/ yarn: http://fuzzyorange.com cat's blog: http://fuzzyorange.com/vsd/ "Memes are a hoax!
