There are "patched QT" and "unpatched QT" versions of wkhtmltopdf (see http://code.google.com/p/wkhtmltopdf/). I am using V0.9.9 for Windows which is "patched QT".
There is one drawback with wkhtmltopdf: At least on my Netbook (Win7 64bit, Pentium 1.5GHz) it is very slow. It takes more than 3 hrs to create git-doc.pdf. If you want to have a quick look on the resulting pdf just clone https://github.com/tacker66/git-docpdf.git. This repo contains a current version of user.manual.pdf and git-doc.pdf ----- Original Nachricht ---- Von: Jeff King <p...@peff.net> An: Thomas Ackermann <th.acke...@arcor.de> Datum: 06.10.2012 21:32 Betreff: Re: [Patch 0/5] Create single PDF for all HTML files > On Sat, Oct 06, 2012 at 05:51:15PM +0200, Thomas Ackermann wrote: > > > I wanted to have a single PDF file which contains the complete Git > documentation > > (except user-manual) for easier reading on my tablet.
