Yes, very very, simply.  The RLIB product is designed specifically
for this, it produces PDF, HTML, text, and CSV.  Get the source
and look at the examples.  Use the unstable version, 1.3.6
(it has the most features and is used in production at
a number of sites).  The PHP or Python examples are the most
up to date. Go to: http://rlib.sicompos.com/
