Aspose pdf does not work with CSS? Aspose support- please advise

I am testing aspose pdf because we are considering buying the license to use your software, but it seems like it does not work on img with CSS display:none stylesheet. The image keeps getting displayed in the converted pdf, even though display:none specifies that it should not be.

the html i was testing earlier is much longer, so I tried testing using a simpler html as shown below, but the image is still getting displayed.

<html><br><br><body><br><br><h2>Spectacular Mountain</h2><br><br><img src="" style="display:none;"><br><br><p>Notice that the h1 element with display: none; does not take up any space.</p><br><br></body><br><br></html>

this is the C# code i am using to test aspose.pdf

<html><body><h2>Spectacular Mountain</h2><img src=\"\" style=\"display:none;\"><p>Notice that the h1 element with display: none; does not take up any space.</p></body></html>";
MemoryStream stream = new MemoryStream(System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(responseFromServer));
HtmlLoadOptions options = new HtmlLoadOptions();
options.UseNewConversionEngine = true;
options.PageInfo.Margin.Bottom = 0;
options.PageInfo.Margin.Top = 0;
options.PageInfo.Margin.Right = 0;
options.PageInfo.Margin.Left = 0;
options.PageInfo.Height = Aspose.Pdf.Generator.PageSize.LetterHeight;
options.PageInfo.Width = Aspose.Pdf.Generator.PageSize.LetterWidth;
Aspose.Pdf.Document pdfDocumentAs = new Aspose.Pdf.Document(stream, options);

i have also attached a pdf that’s generated from the above code. it contains the img, but it should not.

Please advise how to make display:none; CSS work (by not displaying image in the converted pdf).


can aspose support please advise?
