Hello everybody!

Yesterday I read the article "Dynamically generate a MS Word document using HTML & CSS" Dynamically generate a MS Word document using HTML & CSS[^] and I really enjoyed read it. But all this code only works on ASP instead PHP. I want develop a small application that can generate a MS word document via PHP.
I tried COM and I didn't like using COM objects and is necessary MS Word installed on server to generate MS Word document. In my opinion, it's not appellative!
I also tried HTTP headers but I didn't like the final product. The layout is Web instead Print, the page is portrait instead landscape.

Is it possible adapt code written in ASP to PHP?
I would appreciate some constructive suggestions to overcome this small obstacle.

Best Regards,

Peter

Take a look at the following discussion:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/124959/create-word-document-using-php-in-linux[^]

Same query is discussed in detail.
   
Answering to my question: Yes, it's possible adapt ASP code to PHP.

HTML
<html
    xmlns:o='urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office'
    xmlns:w='urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:word'
    xmlns='http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40'>
    <head><title>Time</title>
    <xml>
        <w:worddocument xmlns:w="#unknown">
            <w:view>Print</w:view>
            <w:zoom>90</w:zoom>
            <w:donotoptimizeforbrowser />
        </w:worddocument>
    </xml>
    <style>
        @page Section1
        {size:8.5in 11.0in;
         margin:1.0in 1.25in 1.0in 1.25in ;
         mso-header-margin:.5in;
         mso-footer-margin:.5in; mso-paper-source:0;}
        div.Section1
        {page:Section1;}
    </style>
</head>
<body lang=EN-US style='tab-interval:.5in'>
    <div class="Section1">
<h1>Hello Word!</h1>
    </div>
</body>
</html>


PHP
header("Content-type: application/vnd.ms-word");
header("Content-Disposition: attachment;Filename=report_".date("d_m_Y_G_i").".doc");
?>


Your editor PHP, maybe, can alert you about some unknown HTML tag . You must ignore it.

I would like to thanks at 'Anil' Radhakrishna for his contribution.
