Alignment problems in email PDF template generation with Smarty

Question asked by [.::MDT::.] [.::MDT::.] on May 25, 2015
I am trying to create a PDF template in SugarCRM.

I had a lot of problems because the engine seems to strip a lot of HTML tags, or do not handle HTML tags correctly anyway.

I had issues with table alignment, which I more or less solved by reading (basically you need to insert the width in the TD element and only there!).

Still, issues with text alignment are driving me mad.
For example, see code below:

              <strong>                  $contact_last_name $contact_first_name                   <br />                                  </strong>                                <strong>                  $contact_alt_address_street                   <br />                               </p> </td> 
In this example, contact last name and first name are not indented, whereas the address field is indented.
In other words, I expect last name and address to be aligned, but they are not.

Any idea how to solve that?

Thanks a lot.
