Black line on right side of page, and a few characters are wrong

I'm trying to set up a PDF printing solution using a specific template created for this purpose, with no javascript. Just pure CSS and images.
Here's a link to one of these pages:

The resulting PDF has a black border on the right side, all through to the bottom, and a few characters doesn't render correctly. But they do on the first page! These are Norwegian characters that is. Any ideas? I tried typing these characters here, but that gave me a Phorum error. So your forum php doesn't support these characters either :p

My PHP file looks like this, shouldn't be anything extraordinary here I think


if (isset($_GET['url'])) {
	$url = $_GET['url'];
	require 'pdfcrowd.php';
	    // create an API client instance
	    $client = new Pdfcrowd(" ", " ");
	    // convert a web page and store the generated PDF into a $pdf variable
	    $pdf = $client->convertURI($url);
	    // Options
	    // set HTTP response headers
	    header("Content-Type: application/pdf");
	    header("Cache-Control: no-cache");
	    header("Accept-Ranges: none");
	    header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=\"". $url . ".pdf\"");
	    // send the generated PDF 
	    echo $pdf;
	catch(PdfcrowdException $why)
	    echo "Pdfcrowd Error: " . $why;

The web page currently returns an empty page. Let me know once it is working and I will look into it.

Oh sorry! There was an error in the link. I've updated the post now so it shows the correct link

Sorry for the late reply...
I tested your URL and the resulting PDF looks correct to me. Did you make any changes or does the problem still persist?
