There is a test you can do in one of the fields where the pdf is 
returning an error.

1. go to a simple page that you know ought to work

2. click the pdf icon to bring up the confirmation screen

3. in the browser's address bar, go to the very end, which should
   say format=makepdf

4. change this to format=pdf and press return

5. this will tell pmwiki to generate wikibook xml instead of html 

You should see something like this (depending on your browser, 
you may have to View Source):

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<!DOCTYPE article PUBLIC "-//Affinity Ltd//DTD wikibook 0.9.3//EN" 
  <title>Wikipublisher: Home Page</title>
  <author>Page from the PmWiki+WikiPublisher</author>
  <date>31 March 2006, at 11:01 AM</date>
<meta type="duplex" value="on" />
<meta type="justification" value="on" />
<meta type="sectionnewpage" value="off" />
<meta type="autonumber" value="0" />
<meta type="headingstyle" value="sans" />
<meta type="bodystyle" value="serif" />
<meta type="fontsize" value="11pt" />
<meta type="toc" value="off" />
<meta type="pagesize" value="A4" />


<!--PageText--><p>and so on.

If you see anything else, it's not finding the right skin.

Let me know what happens.
