###Manually

Example usage

	$pdf = new SS_DOMPDF();
	$pdf->setHTML($mydataobject->renderWith('MyTemplate'));
	$pdf->render();
	$pdf->toFile('mypdf.pdf');

The $pdf->streamdebug(); function is useful for quickly viewing pdfs, particularly if your browser supports displaying pdfs, rather than downloading.

You can check your html before it is converted like this:

	echo $mydataobject->renderWith('MyTemplate');die();
