Yes. I tried this about a month and a half ago, so I don't remember
the specifics. Certain table attributes seemed to make it stop and if
I had:

<screen>
<command>
foo
</command>
</screen>

I had to change it to:

<screen>
<command>foo</command>
</screen>

I can't remember if that was because it gave it too much space or
because it stopped at that point when making the PDF.

I'll go through my log files this weekend and try to give you more
specifics.

If you have time, you can check out the fedora-docs module and run
make pdf in the developer-guide or documentation-guide directory and
see the error messages. Maybe they mean more to you than me.
