PDF rendering is a sore point for me, too. To my knowledge there still isn't a satisfactory open source implementation of print-related CSS 3 features. PhantomJS has all sorts of problems, and PrinceXML is expensive.

@jdfreder: I'll try to look at it sometime today. Can you post a summary of what you've found and what the current clearest statement of the problem is up on the PR?

@jdfreder: it sounds like you're pretty sure that the problems are in the test frameworks?
or how we are using the test frameworks?

To run the tests against PhantomJS iptest js/widgets
for slimer iptest js/widgets --slimerjs
Yes I haven't been able to replicate the problem in Chrome

but I'm not comfortable writing it off as "a problem with the tests" until I'm sure it is. If it is, I'd like to be able to solve the problem instead of removing the corresponding tests.

@jasongrout I just got the slimerjs tests to work!
checking PhantomJS now...
aww PhantomJS still will not pass...
I'm going to try updating Phantom to see if that's the problem.
@jasongrout I pushed the code that get's the slimerjs test to pass

awesome, I'll go check it out
I'm just grinding through the other tests, making them display async safe
so at least they'll pass slimer
