Can someone please provide assistance?


Can you please save the HTML file to hard drive and try generating the pdf file using that file. In case the issue persists, please share the HTML file with us so that we can test the issue at our end. We apologize for your inconvenience.

OK -- I was just being silly -- sorry -- I was trying to pass the string html into it the bindhtml method versus creating a textreader of some sort.

Once I used a textreader, it worked.

So how does Aspose handle relative links to css files, image files etc?


Css is not supported. Relative path of image can be supported by HtmlInfo.ImgUrl.

Css is not support in what manner? Any manner? i.e. if I have in line style sheet it will not work??

What if I hard code the full URL path to the CSS would it work then?


Css is totally not supported. The HTML feature is Beta version and only simple HTML is supported. We are working on this issue but it can't be available in short time. Sorry for the inconvenience.
