Hello Lee and Steffen,

Thanks for your reply.

I am still suffering with the same issue.  I have got a blank pdf page
and without any error. I'm providing more info here so that it would be
easier to find out the problem.

.htaccess for testing pdf generator
php_value max_execution_time 600
php_value max_input_time 600
php_flag display_startup_errors on
php_flag display_errors on
php_flag html_errors on

typo3 constant part
pdf_generator2.top = 30
pdf_generator2.bottom = 20
pdf_generator2.left = 0
pdf_generator2.right = 0

typo3 setup
pdf_generator.stylesheet = fileadmin/template/css/pdfversion.css
pdf_generator.50 = COA
pdf_generator.50.5 = HTML
pdf_generator.50.5.value (
<base href="http://localhost/mysite/" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all"
<div id="pdfheader"></div>
<div id="body">
pdf_generator.50.10 = CONTENT
pdf_generator.50.10 < styles.content.get
pdf_generator.50.15 = HTML
pdf_generator.50.15.value (
<div style="position: fixed;top:-100px;left: 0;width: 200px;height:
80px;" id="pdffooter"><img src="fileadmin/template/images/pdfLogo.png"

realurl is enabled

Now with in the browser (firefox) If I change a link to pdf like
http://localhost/mysite/contact.pdf it gives a blank page without any
error. Even there is no error in the apache log. Please note the page
http://localhost/mysite/contact.html has content.

any clue ?
