Html tables within html tables are not formatting properly when added to the PDF

The lst datafile with out the other html files.pdf is the PDF file we produce. We create a number of pdf files from HTML files then we combine all of those PDF files into a single PDF file.


The LST DATAFIELD.zip is a zip of one of the HTML pages we are adding to that PDF. This HTML has a lot of tables embedded in tables but is correct HTML.

The following code is what is being used to convert the html to a PDF…

htmldoc.Save(@“c:\temp\test.pdf”);

as you can see in the PDF the html tables do not embed inside of each other properly.

Is there a solution to this issue.

It seems to not wrap data in column quick enough that it should wrap (and is wrappable in HTML file).
