I'm working with a client with an existing Rails application that
generates Microsoft Word, RTF and PDF documents as (downloadable)
output.? It's important that this output contain paragraph formatting
correctly (such hanging indents for paragraphs).
The application currently runs a background jruby server which uses
the itext Java library http://itextpdf.com/
as document generation library which can output RTF (good enough for MS
Word) and PDF.? For various reasons, notably hosting restrictions, we
want to get away from the requirement of needing to link to a Java
library, and would prefer to use a web API service instead.
Google Docs does offer such a service, to create documents via api
and download them in various formats.? However the fidelity of paragraph
traffic/data volume limits could be a concern with Google Docs.
I'd be curious for any suggests of services you know of or have
tried, and their commercial viability (uptime, reliability, price
