There's also an old formsPlayer demo that collects invoice information, and
then creates both PDF and HTML views of it. I mentioned it a while ago on
this list, in relation to a question about PDF output, but here's the link


The demo has been gathering dust for over a year so has a few rough edges --
but it does allow you to enter invoices via XForms. Each invoice is then
given its URLs at which it can be viewed as PDF or HTML files.

Click on "(Re)load List of Invoices", and then click on the URL of one of
the invoices and you'll see the generated PDF file for that invoice. Also,
you can change the file extension to ".html" to see an HTML version.

To create an invoice just select "Create New Invoice".

If you don't have formsPlayer installed, you can still see the PDF output --
a sample invoice is here:
