<cfhtmltopdfitem type="header"><div>in header</div></cfhtmltopdfitem> throws exception: "Error in handling header footer related attributes."

Adobe CF says this is AsDesigned b/c Acrobat only supports 5 HTML tags (<body>,<p>,<i>,<b>,<span>) in header/footer per  If <cfdocumentitem> could handle more than that, then why can't Adobe's own Acrobat!?

This is just one of the reasons most existing <cfdocumentitem type="header|footer"> tags cannot be converted to <cfhtmltopdfitem type="header|footer">, and why <cfhtmltopdfitem type="header|footer"> cannot even be used for new code.

Adobe CF should create a ticket w/ Adobe Acrobat to get this fixed so that <cfdocumentitem type="header|footer"> is fit for purpose.  This ticket could just be marked Open/ToFix/ThirdParty.

While this ticket is related to #3928680, #3928680 was actually created as a 'bug' whereas this ticket is created as an 'ER' (an ER to request a ticket be opened w/ the Acrobat team).  Therefore, this ticket should not be marked as a duplicate of #3928680.

+1. Since it is also part of the newer 1.7 spec (2006), probably not going to happen. The real push should be for the 2.0 specification to support not only additional html but also greatly expand style support. Then change the rendering engine to support the new spec. Since 2.0 is still in the works, push the Acrobat team to fight for adoption of all html5 layout and text options and CSS3.

Please make 3932116 visible for voting. This is a critical limitation and prevents our migration from <cfdocument> to <cfhtmltopdf>. Thanks!, -Aaron
