So which library are you planning to use to generate PDFs? I would like as usual, that we don't depend on a PHP module. I used the following library before and I think it was good:

http://www.fpdf.org/

Feel free to propose others.

I think the feature to generate PDFs should be enabled once the user sets in the config the path for the library we are using, or an ON/OFF flag. We don't necessarily have to distribute the library with Mantis. This can be decided when we choose the library.

In my opinion the ON/OFF-Flag (similar to jpgraph implemenation) would be a good solution.
I have no prefered pdf-library. I think it's not critical because the pdf-document normally contains plain text with some boxes. It should look like the Word-Docoment. A table of contents (Similar to "View Issues"-Table) with document-internal-links at the beginning of the pdf would be nice for later implementations.

Yes, I think we should use something without dependencies on a PHP module.

I've tried some classes to generate pdf and fpdf is a very good solution.
It's easy to create a pdf which looks like the Word output.
