PDF from page using Highcharts

I have a page that uses Highcharts to provide graphs and charts. When I try to make a PDF of a page that has a pie chart, the pie chart doesn't render.

Here is the source of a test page.

		<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
		<title>Highcharts Example</title>
		<!-- 1. Add these JavaScript inclusions in the head of your page -->
		<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
		<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

		<!-- 2. Add the JavaScript to initialize the chart on document ready -->
		<script type="text/javascript">
			var chart;
			$(document).ready(function() {
    					colors: ['#32A2D4', 

				chart = new Highcharts.Chart({
					chart: {
						animation: false,
						renderTo: 'container',
						margin: [0, 0, 0, 0]
					title: {
						text: ''
					plotArea: {
						shadow: null,
						borderWidth: null,
						backgroundColor: null
					tooltip: {
						formatter: function() {
							return '<b>'+ +'</b>: '+ this.y +' %';
					plotOptions: {
						pie: {
							allowPointSelect: false,
							cursor: 'pointer',
							dataLabels: {
								enabled: false,
								formatter: function() {
									if (this.y > 5) return;
								color: 'white',
								style: {
									font: '13px Trebuchet MS, Verdana, sans-serif'
					legend: {enabled: false
				    series: [{
						type: 'pie',
						name: 'Vender share',
						data: [
							['Google',   45.0],
							['MSN',       26.8],
								name: 'Yahoo',    
								y: 12.8,
								sliced: false
							['Ask',    8.5],
							['Looksmart',     6.9]
		<!-- 3. Add the container -->
		<div id="container" style="width: 800px; height: 193px; margin: 0 auto"></div>

We have deployed a fix, the code above should work now. Please, let us know if you see any other problems with Highcharts.

Great! Thanks for the quick response and fix. I've checked my page and can confirm that it does output to PDF as expected. I'm very impressed by the fast resolution.
