I am searching an alternative to latex.
The software should be used to create coloured invoices (PDF) for the gas and electricity industry.
I know that latex is great for math, but in this case it does not fit.
Latex is too clever and wants to do the things occurding to the latex rules.
But in my case I just want the output to look like the customer wants it to be.
- open source
- Support for latin1
- Support for unicode would be great
- creates PDFs (DIN A4)
- works on linux without gui
- text based, not GUI based (libreoffice is not a solution)
- Support for tables which span several pages. Table headers should occur on the second page again.
