And on this note, I'd be interested to know what others use (beyond
ConTeXt!) for this. Myself I tend to use inkscape and sed for complex
graphics heavy stuff.
Just make your template doc, sed the text into placeholders then just go:
$ inkscape /tmp/fred.svg --output-pdf=out.pdf
I use this all the time in web form and other automation things. Like
printing 3000 individually numbered raffle tickets with stubs 4-up on
A4 for the kids school last night.. :)
