In this demo you can add a HTML object to a PDF document. You can construct the HTML object from an URL or a local file or from a HTML code. When you create the HTML object from a HTML code you can also set a base URL to resolve the external resources from HTML document having relative paths. You can control the PDF page size and orientation, the PDF page margins, the HTML object location, width and height in PDF, the HTML browser width and height.
