Happy to hear you landed on Prince, that’s what I use for document generation. Prince is great but it’s like a $3500 polyfill for bad CSS3 paged media support in browsers.

I look forward to the day where I won’t be needing Prince for my work. It seems that there are enough parties who would have an interest in improving this aspect of browser support (I’m thinking Apple and Amazon). It’s not a sexy subject but making HTML output to paper in a good way will ultimately make it the ultimate archiving language, moreso than it already is.

Long after proprietary .docx and .pages formats have faded, structured HTML documents will be able to be machine and human-read.
