Next week, I start a new job, writing doc for users and administrators of a
big complex security software product.

The Development team already use Confluence for their internal wiki, and I
am considering using it to also write the doc. However, the boss really
wants me to be able to publish as PDF.

The internet tells me that you can configure Confluence to produce a
pleasant-looking PDF, using CSS and HTML.

However, I have not been able to find any examples. I can write clean HTML
and really basic CSS, but I have no idea where to start with this.

Do you know of any examples?

Also, do you have any opinions about the sensibleness of authoring in
Confluence and publishing to PDF?
