We want a unix/linux based command line tool that converts HTML to PDF properly (proper image placement, tables, CSS etc.). The idea was to base it on the Mozilla Engine (Gecko). But we don't want to have X11 installed on the server. However, it doesn't have to use this engine but it must be able to handle Tables, images and so on properly (unlike several existing tools which do not handle image placement properly and often produce unreadable tables and so on). The completion of the project involves having a source that compiles on both Suse-Linux and FreeBSD-UNIX.
