[Mono-list] PDF creation library for Mono?

I have had some success using fop (http://xml.apache.org/fop/) and ikvm
(http://weblog.ikvm.net/).  It uses xsl-fo to produce pdf documents
which (in my opinion) makes it a little more flexible than coding a pdf
document by hand.  If you are comfortable with xsl and xml it is pretty
easy to get up to speed on.

I have tried using the .net port for fop (http://nfop.sourceforge.net)
but I ran into some issues.  I already had the fop/ ikvm solution
working so if I had tried harder I might have gotten it working

Hope that helps.
