Converting Twitter bootstrap page into PDF with wkhtmltopdf : span issue

Issue

I am using Symfony2 Bundle KnpSnappyBundle to convert an html twig template to a pdf.

KnpSnappyBundle is base on Snappy wrapper, that use wkhtmltopdf.

My template use twitter bootstrap 2.3.2 css like this :

<div class="container">
    <div class="row">
        <div class="span12">
            <h4>TITLE</h4>
        </div>
    </div>
    <div class="row">
        <div class="span6" id="customers">
            <h5>TITLE</h5>

            <p>TEXT</p>

            <ul class="unstyled">
                <li>LIST ITEM</li>
                <li>LIST ITEM</li>
                <li>LIST ITEM</li>
                <li>LIST ITEM</li>
            </ul>
        </div>
        <div class="span6" id="estimate">
            <h5>TITLE</h5>

            <ul class="unstyled">
                <li>LIST ITEM</li>
                <li>LIST ITEM</li>
                <li>LIST ITEM</li>
                <li>LIST ITEM</li>
            </ul>
        </div>
    </div>
</div>

Problem : the customers and estimate spans are not on the same line as they should be.
I don’t know what is going on.

Solution

Here is solution for Bootstrap3: Use .col-xs-n always.

The reason is wkhtmltopdf didnt support css in @media block. In bootstrap3, only col-xs-n rule outside @media block.

I’ve checked the bootstrap2.3.2 css, seems spanN rules always be inside @media block.

So an ugly solution would be copied out all spanN rules into top level to another css file and included it into html.
