I've had some issues with OO 1.1 pdf generation producing some garbled
bits here and there. I hope it's better with OO 2.0

Unfortunately this means I have had to punt and use windows for pdf
generation. I've had good results with cutepdf writer (free as in beer),
which integrates and looks just like a windows printer. So you can use
any app on Windows to create a document then print to cutepdf writer.

Cutepdf writer requires you to install a version of ghostscript. Both
ghostscript and the cutepdf packages are available at
