Html To Pdf fails due to CSS

We’re developing an application that pulls emails from Exchange and converts the message body to PDF. When calling the Save() method we’re getting a “Media type is not correct” error message which I’ve been able to track down to CSS selectors in the html email. Once I remove these selectors the PDF is generated successfully.

@font-face {font-family:“Cambria Math”; panose-1:2 4 5 3 5 4 6 3 2 4;}
@font-face {font-family:Calibri; panose-1:2 15 5 2 2 2 4 3 2 4;}
@page WordSection1 {size:8.5in 11.0in; margin:1.0in 1.25in 1.0in 1.25in;}

I’ve attached a stripped down html and our code to generate the PDF.

Hi,


I’m using Aspose.PDF 4.8 and also have problem with converting html files exported from Outlook. I know that msg file should be rather used here, but this is not an option in my case.

When these additional css tags will be supported or is there any way to ignore unrecognised css tags so the content of htm file is converted without exception?

Thanka,
Kamil

Hello Kamil,

Thanks for sharing the resource files.

I have tested the scenario and I am able to notice that the source HTML file contains very complex Tags. However, we are looking into the details of this problem and will keep you updated on the status of correction. We apologize for your inconvenience.

Hi,


How is going with this issue? When fix for that may be available?

Thanks,
Kamil

Hello Kamil,

Thanks for your patience.

Our development team is working hard to support the additional CSS tags and I am afraid the problem is not yet resolved. Besides this, your requirement on "is there any way to ignore unrecognized css tags so the content of htm file is converted without exception?" has already been logged in our issue tracking system with an ID PDFNET-25519. As soon as both the issues are resolved, we would be more than happy to share the information with you.

Your patience and comprehension is greatly appreciated in this regard. We apologize for this delay and inconvenience.

The issues you have found earlier (filed as 25519) have been fixed in this update.

Hello Kamil,

Thanks for your patience.

We have further analyzed the issue PDFNET-24526 (Convert emails exported from outlook into PDF) and have observed that attached html files contains non HTML compliant tags. There is string like <html xmlns:v="urn:</SPAN>schemas-microsoft-com:vml<SPAN>", which indicates that its schemas-microsoft-com:vml document.

We would recommend you to please check Outlook options for a try enabling checkbox "Send email in HTML format " to ON. It will ensure that Outlook sends emails as HTML document and then you may try using Aspose.Pdf for .NET to convert it into PDF format. In case you still face any problem or you have any further query, please feel free to contact. We apologize for your inconvenience.
